Homemade salsa (restaurant style) + video
This is such a simple homemade salsa recipe! All you have to do is pour all the ingredients into the blender and stir! It tastes like a restaurant salsa, and it goes perfectly with nachos, tacos, enchiladas or any other Mexican food!
Without free salsa or dipping sauce, a Mexican main course is incomplete! This is the simplest and most versatile salsa (it goes with everything!), but we like to change the flavor with cucumber, mango or strawberry salsa from time to time!
Home Chinese restaurant style salsa
Who doesn’t love salsa? I grew up on these things (remember-I am half Mexican!) I have always liked great homemade salsa recipes, and I have tried many different kinds as I grew up. I have tried many recipes myself and I like them all, but I think I finally found the easiest and most delicious way to make homemade salsa.
This best homemade salsa recipe takes only a few minutes to make and tastes like it came straight from the restaurant. All I need is a big bowl of homemade corn flakes and I’m ready. 😉

How to make salsa
When I say you really throw everything into your blender or food processor, I’m not kidding, that’s it. No shredding, no dicing, nothing! Even Roma tomatoes and coriander can be thrown away whole. How good is it? !
Use all fresh tomatoes: For the convenience of this recipe, I use canned tomatoes. I also like that the rotel has been mixed with jalapenos, all I have to do is add all the ingredients to my bullet. However, you can skip the canned tomatoes and use fresh tomatoes. There are 5-6 whole peeled tomatoes in a 14-ounce jar.
Here are some variations you can make to this salsa recipe:
- No fresh tomatoes? Just add another can of Rotel (drain)!
- If you like to add onions to the salsa, add ½ small onions and roughly chop them.
- If you want to be less spicy, you can grow jalapenos or leave the seeds in for spicy.
- Add 1 teaspoon of honey for a hint of sweetness.
- If your local grocery store does not have Ro-Tel (canned diced tomatoes with green peppers), you can substitute half a can of diced tomatoes, plus 4 ounces. A jar of green peppers.
How to thicken your salsa
If your salsa is too runny or too runny to suit your liking, try adding cornstarch slurry. For each cup of salsa you want to thicken, add 1 tablespoon of cornstarch in a separate bowl. Then add an equal amount of water in a separate bowl (for example, if you use 3 tablespoons of cornstarch, add 3 tablespoons of water). Stir until a paste forms.
If your salsa is cold, this won’t work, so put your salsa in a saucepan and heat it over medium heat. Once it boils, add the cornstarch slurry to the salsa and stir.
Just add all the ingredients…and mix!
How to store salsa + frozen
storage. If stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator, fresh salsa can be kept for a week. If the color starts to darken, the smell starts to disappear or fungus forms, then the salsa is no longer delicious. This is also based on the fresh ingredients you use to make the salsa.
**notes**: Even if I put it in a glass jar, it still Keep refrigerated. Don’t put it on the food rack. If you give it as a gift, be sure to convey this information.
Can you freeze fresh salsa? The short answer is yes, you can freeze the salsa. However, there are some tips to keep in mind.
- The salsa may change color. To prevent this, add a little lemon juice or lime juice to the salsa.
- When salsa is thawed, it tends to be more watery. You can drain the excess water from the thawed salsa, or you can pre-treat the tomatoes before making the salsa. You can pretreat the tomatoes first, cut the tomatoes into quarters, and then put them in a colander. Second, let the water drain for a few hours.
- Make sure to store in a small amount in an airtight container.
- Do not freeze thick salsa. The sauce is best frozen.
Frozen salsa can be stored for 2-4 months.
