Ingredients
  • 2 14.5 oz. Cans Diced Tomatoes
  • 1 can of Rotel (we use Rotel original, but you could also use the hot or mild versions)
  • 1 Palmful of Cilantro
  • 2-3 Garlic Cloves
  • 2 Fresh Jalapenos
  • 1 Yellow Sweet Onion, chopped
  • 1 TBSP Vinegar
  • 1 TBSP Olive Oil
  • Dash of Cumin
  • Salt to Taste
  • Pepper to Taste
Instructions
  1. Now, here is how easy this salsa is… dump everything into a blender and turn it on! Blend everything until the desired level of “chunkiness” is acquired.


Some variations that you can try:

  • For a mild version, use just one jalapeno and mild Rotel.
  • For a chunkier version, drain one or both cans of tomatoes before putting them in the blender.
