As soon as we pick up our kids from school in the afternoon, they always ask, “What’s for dinner?”
It’s like these little humans in our home think that food is a necessity or something. I could totally be fine with Homemade Chocolate Chip Brownies for dinner, but that isn’t really looked upon as a nutritious dinner choice.
Those two meals get made the most around here. It’s a good thing everyone loves them.
And of course, we cannot have tacos without having salsa. I cannot believe that I have not shared our homemade salsa recipe with you. It’s been almost 11 years of blogging, and I have kept my favorite salsa recipe from you.
Since Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner, I decided that it was time for our family salsa to come to the blog. My husband has been making this homemade salsa for years, and it truly is so delicious.
Although, my hubby doesn’t measure when he makes food. So, I had to stand right there with him this time, so I could measure everything he put in.
He said I was cramping his mojo, but I couldn’t share a recipe that said a pinch of this and a pinch of that. Ya know?
Whenever we go out to eat, we like to get the chips and salsa as an appetizer. Most of the time, I am not crazy about those salsas because they just don’t taste right.
My husband says it is because his salsa is made with love!
I prefer my salsa to have that fresh tomato taste, but it can’t be chunky. And it cannot taste like tomato puree. This is salsa, not sauce. Yes, I do know that I’m picky.
Anyone else out there that is particular in their salsa must haves?
Now I’m sure you are anxiously waiting to see what makes this salsa so amazing that I could eat an entire bag of chips with it.
How to make Easy Homemade Salsa:
Canned tomatoes are the secret to our awesome salsa. Say wwwwhhhaatt? I know, you are shocked, right?
My husband does a ratio of 2:1. Two cans of spicy tomatoes and one can of regular diced tomatoes, drained and pureed to your preferred consistency. We like to use an immersion hand blender, but if you don’t have one of these, a regular blender works just as well.
Stir in some finely diced onions and cilantro, and this Easy Homemade Salsa is ready for you to go to town on it.
We usually make a double batch because it never lasts long around anyone here.
