I typically try to show off recipes that I either created myself or altered to make my own, but this one is a straight up duplicate. But if you’re going to feature a recipe, who better to feature than The Pioneer Woman?
I’m a salsa fanatic, so when I read that she was ‘high maintenance’ when it came to salsa, I decided it was worth giving this recipe a go.

It’s important to note that I doubled this recipe. I’m making dinner for a family and wanted to bring them some homemade salsa, too. Well, I totally could have stuck to the original recipe, because this makes a ton of salsa y’all!
Ingredients (again, I doubled this)
- 1 can (28 Ounce) Whole Tomatoes With Juice
- 2 cans (10 Ounce) Rotel (diced Tomatoes And Green Chilies)
- ¼ cups Chopped Onion
- 1 clove Garlic, Minced
- 1 whole Jalapeno, Quartered And Sliced Thin
- ¼ teaspoons Sugar
- ¼ teaspoons Salt
- ¼ teaspoons Ground Cumin
- ½ cups Cilantro (more To Taste!)
- ½ whole Lime Juice
Through the magic of blogging, voila! it’s all prepped!
Now, the secret to making this an easy recipe is to have a normal sized (large) food processor. I have a mini one. But not for long… I’ll be investing in a regular size stat. But for now, I have a mini….
I had to divide all my ingredients into fourths and then mix them all together in a bowl. It took a while. Use a regular sized food processor. I beg you. Have you ever had to divide 1 tsp into fourths?!
Pulse it a few times (I only pulsed 2-4 times each batch). It doesn’t need much.
And there you have it- homemade salsa!
And doubling the recipe makes a TON of the good stuff…
but lucky for me I love salsa on everything! From homemade enchiladas…
to my morning egg/egg white scramble.
This would be great for a party, or to make on a Sunday and use all week long. It has a nice kick to it, and next time I won’t be shy about adding in a bit more cilantro… mmm… cilantro!
What’s your favorite thing to put salsa on?
Mine is chip… a tortilla chip…
…covered is cheese, onions, guacamole, beans…
