I used to make this 5 Minute Blender Salsa Recipe all the time and had completely forgotten about it until thumbing through a few old recipes.
Honestly, I don’t know why I spaced this recipe out because it beats any store-bought or restaurant salsa, HANDS DOWN! I have also shared my delicious recipe for Queso……that cheesy not good for you, but oh so yummy dip. Both great recipes make quick Football Food! Perfect for snacking during the super bowl.
5 Minute Blender Salsa Recipe
The great thing about it is, it is fast! Within 5 minutes, you can have delicious fresh salsa.
I remember a few years ago when my tomato plants were going nuts and we yielded over 500 tomatoes. I canned salsa, marinara sauce, and cut and froze the rest of the bounty. This year was another record-breaking year, and being a selfish tomato hoarder, I made crockpot tomato sauce and froze it. It’s been so delicious to have fresh tomato sauce all winter long. I didn’t use my frozen tomato sauce for this salsa, but I suppose I could have.
5 Minute Blender Salsa Recipe Ingredients
I like using seasoned canned tomatoes for this 5-minute recipe. Regular diced tomatoes would work too, I just like the extra flavor the fire roasted brings.
Using fresh cilantro, garlic, and lime, give this recipe that garden fresh taste.
As I mentioned earlier, I’m also sharing this Queso recipe. It’s not a football party without it.
