Simple Salsa

Mild salsa similar to local Mexican restaurants - must have a food processor for this recipe as a blender will come out too thin.

Recipe Cost approx. $1.65


1 can Happy Farms diced tomatoes, drained
1 can Casa Mamita diced tomatoes and chiles, drained ("Rotel"-type stuff)
1/2 medium onion, loosely chopped
Juice of 1/2 lime
1 clove of garlic
1/4 c. fresh or frozen cilantro (seasonally available at ALDI- I freeze tons of it when they have it in)
1/2 tsp. sugar/agave nectar/honey/sweetener of your choice equivalent to 1/2 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper


1. Place all ingredients in food processor and pulse until onions are finely chopped and all ingredients are incorporated.

2. Refrigerate for at least an hour before serving for flavors to blend.

*I freeze this in batches to always have on hand. If you find this to be too mild, you could always add a fresh jalapeno to the batch. If you would prefer to use the SimplyNature Organic diced tomatoes, then use one drained can of those and 1 drained can of the Casa Mamita diced chiles instead of the "Rotel" type tomatoes and chiles.


  1. We use the blender, and although it's a bit thin, we love it! My son has the recipe memorized, and tonight taught his sister how to make it to go along with our taco supper! Thanks, Katie!
