Fire Roasted Salsa

I needed salsa to top the burritos I made earlier this week, so where else would I find a recipe but Pinterest? I was a little skeptical that I could make restaurant-style salsa in 5 minutes and in a blender (no cooking!), but the only way to know for sure is to try…

Easy restaurant-style salsa you can whip up in the blender with zesty lime, and spicy roasted tomatoes!

The Ingredients

This recipe had everything I love in salsa: fire-roasted tomatoes, onion, 2 kinds of chili peppers, cilantro, lime, and garlic. All inexpensive and easy to find ingredients. Bonus: no cooking required, and all you need is a blender.

The Process

This must be the easiest recipe I’ve ever made! A little chopping, open a few cans*, juice a lime, toss it all into a blender, and pulse for 30 seconds. Then I popped it into the fridge for a few hours to let the flavors meld. It did take slightly longer than specified, 7 minutes instead of 5, but that’s not a huge deal.

*It wasn’t specified, so I didn’t even drain the canned tomatoes or green chiles.

Terrific with tortilla chips and with this 20 Minute Healthy Burrito Recipe.

So how was it?

It's a little spicy, but not too hot, even with 2 jalapeños. The roasted tomatoes were the most prominent taste (not surprisingly), followed by the chiles, garlic and cilantro. I was a little disappointed that the lime didn't stand out. Still, this is a recipe worth making again, just with an extra lime or two. It had a very fresh tasted even with canned ingredients, and my husband agreed it was on par with a local Mexican restaurant we love.
