Homemade Restaurant Style Salsa

This is such an easy salsa to make. All you have to do is throw everything into a blender and you have fresh homemade salsa in seconds. It takes like it is straight from a Mexican restaurant but it takes even more fresh.

This restaurant style salsa is perfect with these honey lime enchiladas, chicken taco salad, or these oven baked tacos.

Notes

I like to keep my salsa in an airtight container or in a jar sealed. It needs to be stored in the fridge and can be kept for about a week. If your salsa starts to turn a different color then toss it.

How to make this restaurant style salsa

I said it before and I’ll say it again…all you have to do is throw it in your blender.

If you don’t have fresh tomatoes you can use canned. There is about 5 tomatoes in a 14 oz can of tomatoes.

Want to add some more flavor to your salsa?

Sweeter- add a tablespoon of sugar or honey

Spicier- add more jalapenos or keep the seeds in them.

How to make your salsa thicker

If you blend your salsa too thin then you can add a thickening agent.

Take 1 tablespoon cornstarch and whisk it with 1 tablespoon water to create a paste and then you can add it to the salsa to make it thicker.

Storing your salsa

I like to keep my salsa in an airtight container or in a jar sealed. It needs to be stored in the fridge and can be kept for about a week. If your salsa starts to turn a different color then toss it.

Freezing your salsa

I don’t prefer to freeze my salsa, but if you need to you can.

  • Before you freeze add more lime juice to keep it from discoloring
  • When you thaw out your salsa, remove the access water before eating
  • Before you freeze make sure your salsa is fully blended and not chunky
  • Store in an airtight container in small portions
