We're in countdown mode for Super Bowl Sunday. My team's not going to be on the field, but I like both teams (entirely because I like Seattle and I used to live in Boston). Clearly, I don't care who wins - it's all about the food for me. We're going to a party in Tahoe this year, hosted by some close friends. My assignment is to bring an appetizer, so I've been on the hunt for something easy but really good. And this salsa is the winner.
It took about 15 minutes to make, and it's perfect!!!
Restaurant Style Salsa
Adapted from Confessions of a Cooking Diva, who adapted it from The Pioneer Woman blog. Recipe makes about 3 cups of salsa.
- 1 14.5 ounce can whole tomatoes with juice
- 1 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes with green chiles
- ¼ cup chopped red onion
- 2 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1 whole Serrano pepper stemmed, seeded, and coarsely chopped
- ½ teaspoon kosher salt
- ½ cup coarsely chopped cilantro
- 1 ½ tablespoon lime juice
- Combine all of the ingredients in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a blade, or a blender. Pulse until you have the consistency you want.
- Refrigerate for up to 2 weeks, and serve with chips.

Mmmmmmmm Salsa!! Great SRC pick especially during Superbowl Season.
Salsa!!! YUM! Can never have too many salsa recipes - it drives me bonkers when restaurant style recipes don't include cilantro. You gotta have cilantro - I see this one does 🙂 Happy reveal day!
Rebekah @ Making Miracles
Yumm!! Homemade Salsa sounds so fresh and vibrant - and the perfect treat to dunk some delicious tortilla chips in!
Thanks for sharing and I'm so glad you like it. We are big salsa lovers at our house. I bet my husband would love it with a Serrano pepper.

Looks awesome!! The chips and salsa is definitely the best part of Mexican joints!!
Seems perfect for the Superbowl!
a little guac on the side, tortilla chips, or plantain chps, and I am GAME!
Perfect recipe for the super bowl! I will definitely have to try it. Great pick!
Emily @ Life on Food
Chips and salsa are definitely a must for the Super Bowl. I am getting very excited for all the snack foods to come. Happy Reveal Day!
Perfect for winter with the canned tomatoes. You can never have too many salsa recipes! Great pick this month 🙂

I love anyone who says "it's all about the food" when it comes to anything, since that is always my motto too 🙂
I've been trying to eat a bit healthier at the moment too after all the Christmas indulgence, and feeling loads better after a month of clean eating. This looks great for a fairly healthy snack, particularly if served with some fresh veggies for dunking instead of the corn chips.
Betsy @ Desserts Required
Such a fun idea to pick a recipe from someone else's blog, especially when you get something as delicious as this salsa! Perfect for the big game!
