Easy Blender Salsa

homemadesalsa1We specialize in eating local, but we also enjoy surfing food blogs and bringing ideas from afar to use with fresh ingredients from here. Like this easy blender salsa recipe from Mountain Mama Cooks, where blogger Kelley Epstein shares high altitude cooking tips and a love of outdoors from Park City, Utah. If her motto “Eat Well. Play Hard” doesn’t remind you of our home (think Varsity Sports’ ubiquitous t-shirt slogan), this quick appetizer – with its spicy kick – surely will.


  • 1- 14 oz can diced tomatoes (may substitute fresh, finely diced tomatoes in season)
  • 1- 10 oz can original Rotel 
  • 1/2 small onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and smashed
  • 1/2-1 jalapeno, seeded or not (depends on how spicy you like it)
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • small to medium size handful of cilantro, washed
  • juice of 1 lime


Put all the ingredients in the base of a food processor or good blender and pulse to combine for 30 seconds or so until all the ingredients are finely chopped and salsa is desired consistency. Taste for seasoning and adjust to taste. Serve with chips or over tacos.

    Please cite your source when you copy a recipe, especially if it’s word for word like this one is. I’m really disappointed that you’d plagiarize like this! You’re better than that. This recipe was developed by: http://bit.ly/1lwu4KN

      The source is cited in the opening sentence to the recipe and in three different forms.
