Homemade and Healthy! Restaurant-Style Salsa

We had friends over one day and they brought this delicious salsa with them, it was amazing! My husband and I liked it so much, we asked our friend Krissy for her recipe.  We were delighted to see the ingredients – easy, fresh and healthy.  Now we make this salsa all of the time and bring it to parties and events, it’s always a hit! Try this for yourself, you can adjust the recipe to fit your tastes. And once you get comfortable with the amounts, you can do like I do – just throw things in and mix them together.


1 15 oz. can of stewed tomatoes

1 15 oz. can of diced tomatoes

1 can of Rotel

Garlic cloves (or powder) to taste – start at about 1/2 tsp.

1 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp salt

2 tbsp honey (this is the magic ingredient)

2 tbsp jalepenos and juice (more or less depending on the heat you want)

cilantro, stems removed (quickly chop off the bottom – don’t waste time!)

1 onion, diced



1. Put the tomatoes, Rotel, garlic, cumin, salt, honey, jalepenos in the blender and pulse until chunky and blended.

2. Put the cilantro in the blender and pulse until chopped into bits.

3. Dice the onion and pour into serving bowl.

4. Pour the blender mixture on top of the serving bowl of onions and mix well.

5. Enjoy!
