Best Fresh Salsa EVER…and easiest!



Tried and true! The best fresh salsa ever and easy to make!

This is my go-to potluck recipe!  I make this salsa for every event, but I also make a big bowl of it for myself every now and then.  I love that it’s healthy and is heavy on the cilantro. salsa recipe



1 can of peeled whole tomatoes

1 can of mild or medium diced tomatoes and green chilies (RO-TEL)

3 cloves of garlic (peeled)

1 bunch of cilantro leaves

1/2 tsp. ground cumin

juice from 1 lime

salt and pepper to taste

1 ripe avocado



1. Place all ingredients (except the avocado) in a food processor or blender.

2. Blend together until you have the desired texture.

3. Pour in serving bowl and stir in diced avocado.

4. Enjoy!

If you want to get nice and fancy hollow out some avocado skins and serve the salsa in them. 

You can easily half the cilantro or omit the avocado and this salsa is still devoured at every party!

    1. Oh, it's so easy! You are going to love it!

  4. Dude...I'm totally addicted to blender salsa and Rotel...and I happen to have all the ingredients to make this...tonight...or right now...

    1. Liz- it's the best blender salsa EVER! ENJOY, girl!

  5. What size cans? I get mine at Costco and they are 10 lbs!

    1. I use 8-10 whole tomatoes and 10 oz. Rotel. Sorry, I should have been more specific. :)

  6. You say in the recipe to use a can of whole, peeled tomatoes, but in the comments section you say you use 8-10 whole tomatoes?!? What size can are the tomatoes and do we drain the juices from the tomatoes?

  7. Hey there, I use a medium sized can of peeled tomatoes. It's not a bulk size. If you buy whole canned tomatoes in bulk (like the comment above) then you would just use about 8-10 tomatoes from that can. Does that make sense? The can I use has about that many small tomatoes in it. I drain the juice.
