“SO EASY!!! If you love homemade salsa please give this a takes only minutes to make and tastes sooo much better than store bought. If you don't like chipotle-as it does impart that smokey flavor then try using jalapenos or serano esbache(pickled) for a straight up traditional salsa-this is delicious as well. For those of you who do not like any heat just skip the peppers and add a Tablespoon of vinegar or lime juice. This salsa needs time to marinate at least 4 hours, but overnight is best. Enjoy!”
1 large bowl

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (28 ounce) canpetite diced tomatoes
  • 12 cup cilantro, fresh (about 1/3 of a bunch-some stems are ok)
  • 2 -4 chipotle peppers, you decide how hot you like it
  • 2 teaspoons chipotle chili sauce, from the can of chipotle chili peppers
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 12 teaspoon sugar


  1. Put all ingredients in a blender and pulse about 20 seconds or to desired consistency. Pour into container and chill 4hrs to overnight. Lasts about 3-4 days refrigerated.
  2. If you are using jalapeno or seranos add about 2-3 Tbl of the vinegar juice they are canned in-it really makes a great tasting salsa.
  3. The 1/2 tsp sugar helps with any bitterness that may develope from the chilli powder or onion.
  4. I recomend using only red or white onions-not yellow.
