Restaurant Style Salsa

This is my favorite restaurant style salsa recipe! It is blended really well, has the perfect ratio of tomato and fixings, and isn't too watery.

Course Appetizer
Cuisine Mexican
Prep Time 10 minutes
Servings 4 cups


  • 28 oz can whole tomatoes drained
  • 4 oz can green chiles
  • 1 small white onion chopped
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 jalapeno cut open and remove seeds for a milder version
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/2 cup cilantro
  • 1 Tbsp lime juice


  1. Combine all ingredients in an 8+ cup food processor until desired consistency. (I like mine smooth, so I give it a nice and steady grinding until it's practically pureed. You can do it more or less, depending on how you like it.)
  2. Taste test with a tortilla chip and adjust seasonings to liking.
  3. This recipe tastes best after letting sit in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
