You will never be able to eat salsa from the jar again after you try this easy recipe for homemade salsa!
Have you ever tried to make homemade salsa?
I did a few years ago and it really didn’t come out too good. But then one night I was at my friend Jani’s house and she made the most delicious homemade salsa recipe ever. I had to get the recipe and was completely surprised with one ingredient…cilantro.
I even questioned Jani and she said, “You need to use cilantro. Do not substitute.” At the time I didn’t think I even liked cilantro, but I guess I was wrong because I love this salsa recipe and cilantro is the main herb used.
The Best Homemade Salsa Recipe
This recipe really is best for chips or on top of tacos. It’s perfect to put out for guests with a big basket of chips and you can sit around the table chatting and catching up with each other.
Don’t be surprised if you run out of chips! So make sure you buy two bags when you plan on making this recipe.
How to Make Homemade Salsa
For this recipe it’s best to let your food processor do all the work. If you don’t have one, a blender will work but you’ll need to work in stages being careful not to over-stuff the blender.
Combine all the ingredients in the food processor and pulse.
Pulse until you get the consistency you like. Taste to make sure you have enough seasonings. You could add more cilantro if needed.
