Homemade Salsa Recipe

If you’ve never tried your hand at making homemade salsa, you might be very surprised to see just how easy it is to whip up a batch! Using just a few simple ingredients, my homemade salsa recipe makes a batch of pleasantly spicy, cantina-style salsa that is perfect served with chips, or along with tacos, fajitas and more. This is a summer staple at our house, and a batch can easily be made up in just a matter of minutes!

A recipe for traditional salsa prepared with tomatoes, lime and serrano peppers.


  • 28oz canned whole tomatoes ((can substitute an equal amount of peeled fresh tomatoes, if desired))
  • 4 serrano peppers (seeded and chopped)
  • 3 limes (juiced)
  • 1/2 Medium yellow onion (chopped)
  • 1 Medium clove garlic (chopped)
  • 2 teaspoons salt (or to taste)


Step 1
Place tomatoes, peppers, lime juice, onion, garlic and salt in a blender. Pulse well to combine, blending until desired consistency is achieved. Chill 3 hours before serving to allow flavors to blend.

Hint: To make a spicier salsa, leave more seeds in the peppers as you clean them.

      Hi, Tammy! If you hover your mouse over the photo you want to pin, there should be a “pin it” button that appears. So glad you would like to pin this! 🙂
