- 1/4 of an onion
- I large can of diced tomatoes
- 1 jalapeno (we like it spicy)
- 1/2 a bunch of cilantro
- garlic salt (or garlic powder and salt, as shown above)
My mom often forgets this step. It’s vital… otherwise you have runny salsa. You must drain the tomatoes.
Next, chop up the onion and jalapeno.
Next, throw all of your ingredients into a blender/ food processor, and pulse. I typically pulse for 20 seconds at a time, about 4 times. You can always pulse more, but you there is no delete key.
I like it to look like this:
This nifty kitchen gadget makes me happy. Do you have one? It is a hands free can opener. My mom got it for me and my sister for Christmas 3 years ago. It has only needed new batteries one time in 3 years. I highly suggest it for all of your can opening needs, You can buy the hands free can opener on Amazon! I do not understand why it only has 4 stars on Amazon. I give it 5 and half! Although, it does leave sharp-ish edges on the can, but as long as you are not drinking out of the can it’s not a big deal.
Do you love salsa? Do you make it at home or buy it at the store? What is your favorite store bought brand? We would buy pace picante, add another jalapeno and pulse it more in the thing you see above! Do you have a hands free can opener? Have you ever made taco soup? The can opener is a rock star for taco soup.
