It’s absurd the amount of chips and salsa consumed in our household. Once my Aunt shared this recipe with us, it made Pace a dirty word. 😉

Once fresh garden tomatoes are in abundance, you can trade them for the canned variety. The great thing about this recipe… is that you can control the texture whether you like it chunky or smooth. As you can see in the picture above, we like ours on the smooth side.

    Making this today…because you can NEVER have too many chips and salsa. Looks like this recipe is a keeper and I've been looking for a good salsa one…and of course, if it's on Kami's blog, it is guaranteed to be a good one.

    One of my New Year's goals this year was to homemake salsa, and I've been looking for a good recipe. I'm so excited to try it!

    This looks soooo good. Cilantro has got to be one of the best herbs growing on this good earth. I had sinus surgery earlier this week and can't taste anything that isn't spicy right now….so this looks really, really good!

    My mouth is watering now!!!

    I loved the post on your little guy turning two! He is honestly so cute Kami. What a fun collage of pictures of him. Hope you all had fun celebrating!

    homemade salsa is simply the best. I am going to make some of this yummy salsa with our garden tomatoes – almost ready!!

  9. Adela Olivero Grassi says

    And if before blending the ingredients YOU ROAST THE TOMATOES (I do it in a cast iron pan) til the skin is charred….OMG you’ll LOVE IT.

    I made this salsa today and it is AWESOME! I love cilantro, so this recipe is great. It’s easy to make. It’s a little sweet if you put to much sugar so be careful.

    I have a very similar recipe minus the green chiles and sugar. Sometime I throw in some lime juice. I also will mix up my heat depending on the desired taste. I’ll sometimes swap the chiptole peppers for the jalapenos for a more smoky flavor or habanaro for more heat. If you can find roasted tomatoes, those are wonderful! I will use garden grown tomatoes in season and roast them myself, but forget the store ones, they have no flavor, in season or not. Canned tomatoes are very consistent in flavor.

    It is so easy and tastes so good, I won’t ever buy premade salsa again.

    This recipe is amazing! But I have one question my blended salsa came out brown and not red, Why? What did I do wrong? I followed the recipe like it said.

  13. says

    Yes, ma’am. I’ll have some. Definitely pinning this. The fact that you can just throw everything in a blender makes it so easy. We eat a lot of salsa, too, so it would be great to have fresh on hand.

  14. Laura(Annie)Ferguson says

    The salsa really does not need the extra sugar because the tomatoes come with sugar naturally. I sell mine to diabetics so I skip the sugar. My other buyers don’t want the extra sugar either. But, it is all preference, right? Love nobiggie!
