Quick Restaurant-Style Salsa

Nothing tastes better than fresh homemade salsa! This restaurant style salsa is SO easy to make, much less expensive than buying it in the store and customizable to suit your exact tastes. Get this BEST EVER salsa recipe right now, grab your ingredients (likely already in your pantry) and serve it up with your favorite chips or tacos.

Easy Restaurant Style Salsa

Have you ever gone to a restaurant and been served salsa and chips and realize, just as your meal is coming, you aren’t hungry anymore because you’ve devoured so much of the them? Same. And same thing will happen at home with this delicious restaurant-style salsa! It’s delicious and fresh tasting (all while using mostly pantry staples) and a CINCH to put together. Seriously it takes like 5 minutes from start to finish. Serve as is, or pair with your favorite taco recipe (we’ve got a few you might like).

Ingredients Needed for Salsa

  • Canned Diced Tomato (this is essential for that restaurant style taste)
  • Canned Green Chiles
  • Garlic Clove
  • White Vinegar
  • Tomato Paste
  • Red Onion
  • Diced or Grape Tomatoes (you can omit if you don’t have them, but this gives the salsa a bit of a fresh feeling!)
  • Salt

How to Make Salsa in a Blender

This explanation is going to be short and sweet because all you need to do to make restaurant style salsa in the blender is place all of the ingredients in the blender and give it a few pulses! That’s it. Depending on what type of blender to use, just start off with two pulses and then check to see the consistency. Keep pulsing with the blender until it is the right consistency for you. I found 3 pulses were enough to blend my salsa! This can also be done in a food processor.

Do I need to use fresh tomatoes for salsa?

NO! While you definitely can, we made a version that comes together so quickly, doesn’t require fresh tomatoes, and tastes just like the restaurant salsa you know and love!

Customize your Salsa

This recipe is pretty basic. Feel free to add in some other flavors or ingredients to customize it the way you want. Here are some ideas:

  • You can use fresh tomatoes if you have an abundance on hand: now, it will taste less like restaurant style salsa, but can be pretty darned delicious.
  • Add in fresh herbs: grab some fresh cilantro!
  • Add in some spices: have some fun with some smokey flavor with either smoked chipotle peppers or even smoked paprika. Other spices? Cumin, chili powder, black pepper, and garlic powder!
  • Want a kick? Add fresh jalapeño! Remember, the seeds are the spiciest part. Know your audience, too.
  • Make it different: add in roasted red peppers for a unique twist.
  • Add in some bonus items: you can add fruit, such as pineapple or mango for a tropical twist.
  • Brighten it up: once you make it, taste and if you want a little something extra, add a little fresh lime juice.

How long will homemade salsa last?

It should last for roughly one week in the fridge in a sealed container!

Serving salsa:

It goes great with so many things, like our Homemade Guacamole, 15-Minute Chicken TacosTwo-Ingredient Salsa Chicken (Instant Pot or Slow Cooker), and as dressing on our Taco Salad!

  33. Hi Lexi- I absolutely love your blog! I`ve been following you for a while now ever since I found you on pinterest. I tried to add a comment for the Blender Give away but the website did not allow. So I am leaving a comment here. What would I do with this blender! I only have a bullet at home and find that all my smoothies are very choppy and not thoroughly cut down. If I could afford a new Blender of that value I would use it all the time with smoothies and homemade soup.It would be a dream to get this blender!

  40. It would be so much more fun in the kitchen to have an A+++ blender!! The blender and food processor I currently own have not stood up to the recipes that I’ve tried. I can’t make nut butter (the Ninja blender/food processor has corners so the nut meal just gets stuck in the corners and my blender is not powerful enough) and nut meals/flours don’t turn out great. I’d love to be able to make more consistent nut butters myself to save some money!

  41. everything!!! …… Smoothies. Pancake batter. Waffle batter. Salsas. Bread batter. Bulletproof coffee. To name a few

  42. Thanks for all of your tasty recipes! And for this amazing giveaway!
    This blender would be my go to cooking appliance – smoothies, blender bread, salsa, soup.

  43. I am 9 months pregnant with my first child and a blender would help our family tremendously! I plan on making all of his baby food myself & I will also be breastfeeding. A blender would help make quick, healthy meals for a new mom on the go!

  44. Due to my health concerns, I try to have a smoothie every day with things like kale in it. Our present blender sometimes “acts up”, making it difficult to get the texture I want for my smoothie.

  93. I’d make a bunch of different nut butter flavors, and some coconut butter too. (And some wine slushies for my roommate). Being able to grind some gluten free flours would be great as well!

  94. I need a new blender. Mine is from 1996 when I was in college and although I love it and the little chopper that came with it, I really need a new one. When I make homemade mayo it sounds like it is going to die as I am drizzling the oil into it. It smells a little hot as well.

  95. I’d love to make some green smoothies. My current blender makes them too chunky and I can’t stand the consistency when I drink them….I’ve heard good reviews about the Blendtec line.

  96. I would LOVE to make green smoothies. My current blender is AWFUL, it takes 30 minutes to make hummus, and I won’t even attempt a green smoothie in it!

  97. I want to see recipes that use the blender for other functions, not just smoothies and purees, so we can have tips on how to use ours better! Chopping nuts, shredding chicken, etc.

  103. I’d love this blender to make baby purées and smoothie for my kids. I have a 2 year old and 7 month old twins anything that could help me out in the kitchen for a speedy and healthy food preparation is HIGHLY NEEDED! My older son has never been on baby food I always made his at home either blending in a food processor or hand mash but, I can’t seem to keep up with the twins growing need for lots and lots of baby purees!!!!

    Our family loves soups which I’m sure this blender is ideal for that. Also my husband is jumping on the healthy boat with me and has been really hooked on his morning protein smoothies. We don’t have a blender we have a small food processor which is working :/ for the moment but this blender would help out family out so so much!

  104.

I would make your restaurant salsa, green smoothies, nut milk, your Paleo Nutella and pancakes! I wouldn’t be the only one to benefit from winning this, my friends, family and boyfriend would all have happy and full hearts and tummies 🙂 PICK ME!

  106. Recipes of things you wouldn’t think of doing in a blender would be pretty awesome. I made tomatillo salsa and it was delicious!! Smoothies and hummus and a lot of other stuff!! Sometimes I want to use my blender but change my mind just because it takes FOREVER trying to blend anything in it!! It gets stuck about 20 times before I finally get a “decently” blended smoothie or any other stuff!!

  107. This looks like a fantastic blender! It will definitely come in handy with my meal prepping on the weekends, especially soups this winter!

  108. I’ve been Paleo AIP FOR 8 months I’m relearning to cook and bake!! This great appliance would be so helpful! But for a few names….purée of plantains to use in recipes, making home made nut flours, salsa and homemade paleo dressing and mayo and more!!!!

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  111. I made a commitment to myself to start venturing into the soup world so I’d love to have a great blender to help me do that. Also nut butter!! I’d love to start making it at home but am always worried my blender won’t be able to handle it. Also homemade mayo!

  112. I have a very Old Vita Mix and would Love a new BlendTec Blender to make homeade nut milks, smoothies and soups! Awesome! Thank you!

  113. I’m still using my cheap blender I got for my wedding 11 years ago! A blend-tech would be divine for soups, smoothies, almond milk and all the things that happen on the daily at our house. This is an awesome giveaway.

  114. I’d make pretty much anything! I’m a big foodie but have not been about to afford to get an amazing blender! I’d probably start with soup and move on to but butters and bread! Mmmmm!

  115. I understand that the Blendtec can make incredible soups. For sure, my old blender can’t do that. Hardly crushes ice 😉

  116. I would love to win this blender because it would really help with the foods I am making for my family. I am loving the healthy lifestyle. I feel better not only about myself but my family. I want to teach my daughter how to eat healthy so she can pass it down from generation to generation. The blender would make things easier to make the recipes and smoothies!!

  117. I am at my highest weight I’ve ever been and not happy with my body, energy, or mood. I have been trying a Paleo diet but need a blender or food processor for so many recipes. All of my attempts with my cheap one haven’t worked and end in a failed attempt which cause me to eat whats on hand at the house…not good! I feel like a good blender is what I need but can’t afford one. I would be most excited about making salsa and soups..two of my favorite things. I am inspired by your blog and it is motivation for me to be healthy

  118. I use my blender ALL the time but it’s on it’s last leg 🙁 I’d love a Blendtec to make my soups, sauces, smoothies…the options are endless!

  119. Gosh, what to pick?!? 🙂 I would love to make smoothies and nut butters would probably be my first choice. Thanks for the giveaway!

  120. We make smoothies everyday in my house, so this blender would be perfect! Also, one of my favorite gravy recipes uses the blender, so I’d definitely use it for that as well.

  121. I need a Blendtec SOO bad. My food processor is what I use for smoothies and it doesn’t blend ice or frozen fruit very well. This would be a dream!

  122. Would love this blender- so versatile versus a regular blender! I would make soups and this salsa recipe for sure!

  123. My wife and I share the bullet blender which is not big enough to make more than one smoothie. A this blender would definitely make our lives easier especially with 3 kids always wanting some:) We also just stared Paleo and this would help with a family of 5:)

  124. I would love a blender for my apartment at college so I can make a larger variety of meals and healthy smoothies! It would also be great to help me make different types of soups. This would be amazing!

  125. I can’t wait to try this salsa! I’d love to have a Blendtech for smoothies for the family! (we get serious chunks in ours right now – date chunks ruined smoothie night for my 3 yo the other day)

  126. I would LOVE to have this blender as I’m in the process of cleaning up our diet. Three years ago, my former husband died unexpectedly of a cardiac arrhythmia.

  138. If I won, I would love to use this Blendtec blender to create creamy soups, like cream of broccoli and cream of potato. 🙂

  139. I love to cook. There are so many great recipes out there that a great blender would enhance the final product. My 4 year old is very involved with new recipes and being my assistant. I am trying to get my teenagers more engaged and off the “teenage” diet. Awesome appliances and kitchen aids make cooking easier. I would love to actually have an exceptional blender that I can use, rant and rave about. Hopefully it will keep the teens excited about being in the kitchen.

  140. I’ve been looking into one of these! My little Oster just doesn’t have the power to liquefy things I like to blend. No one likes their morning smoothie with leafy bits floating around and getting stuck in their teeth. I just wish I had the money for one so this giveaway has perfect timing!

  141. I would love to win this blender to help me make the fabulous recipes I am now discovering on this website and to help me fulfill me New Year’s resolution to get my blood sugars under control without drugs. Thank you for this opportunity to help myself.

  147. hmm..what would I use this blender for? EVERYTHING. Drinks. Soups. Smoothies. Pesto. Ice cream. Hummus. Possibilities are endless!

  148. I think I would make every sauce, salsa, and juice possible with this blender. I currently don’t have one, so I would make anything and everything I could to make my paleo lifestyle effortless.

  149. I would love to make the salsa in the recipe when I have friends and family over! I’m always making different dips to snack on! Also, I plan on starting a familt within the next year, so I would love to be able to make homemade baby food!

  153. Have been wanting to try to start making more fresh foods and smoothies. I do not have a blender and would be awhile before I could get one. Thanks for the opportunity and sharing

  154. I would use it for everything! To start: hummus. I love hummus, but I don’t currently have a blender or food processor that can make chickpeas into a creamy hummus. Also, I love smoothies and would love to be able to make my own spinach and kale smoothies without ending up with chunks of leafy greens in my cup!

  155. I use a blender for so many things when I’m cooking, but it always takes me so much more time than necessary bc of my blender. I make everything from dips-ex:salsa, humus to pureed soups. And everyday I need a good blender for green smoothies!
    Thank you for entering me! 🙂

  156. This would be so amazing to win. I only have a magic bullet now but want to make healthier drinks etc for my son and I.
