Fresh Homemade Salsa

When it comes to raw tomatoes, I am so picky.  I don’t like those big chunks of tomatoes, don’t know why?  I have given them a try a few times, but no luck.  When I cook too, I try to use as much tomato puree as I can wherever possible. I always used to buy salsa from the store as I kind a like the taste of it and also was hesitant to try at home as I am not a big fan of chunky raw tomatoes.  Finally I decided to give it a try after researching the net that I can make it smooth instead of chunky.  So my husband tries it and goes, “dang it is spicy” after a couple of bites he was like it is yummy…don’t feel the heat anymore…



  • 7-8 soft red tomatoes (or more)
  • 1 jalapeño or to taste
  • 1  red onion or white
  • Large handful cilantro
  • salt to taste
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 of a lime, juiced
  • black pepper to taste


Wash and roughly cut all the ingredients and put it in the food processor.  I used my blender instead.


Now pulse it about 8-9 times until desired consistency.  If you think it is still chunky then you can do it a few more times.

Serve it with a bowl of tortilla chips, or top it off on your favorite mexican entree.
