Fresh Made Salsa

My sweet friend, Katelin, is the nicest and most stylish person I know. Between her husband {Stephen has a major man crush on him}, her sweet baby girl, & herself, they are seriously the most good looking and stylish people! I've known Katelin almost eight years now and she is one of my most favorite people in the world. Truly kind, uplifting, and a blessing to be around.

My sweet friend shared her salsa recipe with me years ago and it's so good! I make it at least once a week so that we always have fresh salsa on hand.

If you know anything about me...know that my favorite foods are chips and salsa. I'll cut carbs anywhere, but I will not cut them from here!

Katelin's recipe is so easy! No need to be an experienced chef or even Mrs. Hot Stuff in the kitchen. Just grab a blender or a food processor and you will have fresh salsa within minutes!

I used to follow this recipe exactly, but over time I have gotten creative and added a few of my own tweaks to this already yummy salsa recipe. For example, I love red onion and a sweet onion instead of a white onion. Stephen does not love cilantro so sometimes I will add less for him. This is so hard for me though because I LOVE cilantro! I also only add one jalapeno instead of two because my kids love salsa, but Addison in particular, doesn't like spicy food. Austin is my mini me....the spicier the better. I also love to add lemon or lime to my salsa. Both are great...I usually use whichever I have on hand.

Katelin is truly a blessing to me and my family. I hope you will all enjoy her easy salsa recipe and share it with the ones you love as well!



Katelin's Easy Salsa Recipe


1 14.5 can of whole tomatoes {I sometimes substitute diced tomatoes or fire roasted diced tomatoes}

1 10 ounce can of Rotel

1/2 large white onion, chopped {I substitute a red onion or a sweet yellow onion}

2 cloves of garlic, minced

1 bunch of chopped fresh cilantro

2 jalapeno peppers chopped {I only use 1. This will depend on how spicy you like it. I have also used a Serrano pepper instead of a jalapeno pepper to switch up the flavor}

1 Tablespoon of cumin (more to taste)

1 teaspoon of salt (more to taste)

1 teaspoon of black pepper

Splash of white wine vinegar

Optional: Juice of 2 lemons or 2 limes


Throw everything in a blender or food processor (no need to chop as much if using a food processor) and pulse several times until desired consistency. Enjoy!
