Everybody needs the perfect salsa recipe to munch on or to smother all their favorite Mexican food in – and this is it!
Fire Roasted Restaurant Blender Salsa (5 Minutes!)
It is also the most perfect appetizer for you to bring to your 4th of July festivities because after all, salsa has become quite American in a way…Because what American doesn’t LOVE salsa? and eat it at every picnic, party, sports gathering, etc?
What American doesn’t eat more salsa and chips when they go out to a Mexican restaurant than their main entree? because, salsa and chips are just so good! ( Unless you go to a popular restaurant in Carlsbad whose salsa tastes more like ketchup but you keep going because the restaurant has the best carne asada burrito ever… In that rare case, you might eat more of your entree than chips and salsa.)
And now, I gift you with being able to make and therefore EAT your very own Fire Roasted Restaurant Blender Salsa at home in 5 minutes!
It goes like this…
Simply toss all of the ingredients except the fire roasted tomatoes and green chilies in a blender.
Living in Carlsbad, (north San Diego), where Mexican restaurants outnumber any other type of food 20-1, I have tasted a lot of salsas! And this homemade restaurant salsa, my friends, is as good as the best I’ve ever tasted!
And what I also love about this salsa, is that you can completely control the consistency and heat – chopping/blending more for a finer salsa, adding the juice from the tomatoes for a thinner salsa, adding the jalapeno seeds for a spicier salsa, etc., but whatever your preference, the bursting flavors of fire roasted tomatoes, green chilies, cilantro, jalapenos, onion, garlic, cumin, chili powder, and a touch of lime will having you reaching for more, and more, and more.
Seriously, this salsa should come with a warning label. You cannot just have one bite! Which again, is completely American 🙂
I hope you enjoy my Fire Roasted Restaurant Blender Salsa that will completely transport you to your favorite Mexican restaurant – that is, if your favorite Mexican restaurant even serves salsa this good!
