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…
Brooke @ Veggie Table says

Lindsay @ The Lean Green Bean says
looks SO good! bookmarked. ps…i made a pioneer woman recipe for dinner tonight 🙂
Oh my this looks absolutely divine! I love salsa and now I think I just might attempt making my own!
Tanya @ Vegan Faith says
That certainly is high-maintenance salsa! Maybe you will just share some with me so I don’t have to make my own!
Homemade salsa, yummy! And I agree the tortilla chip goes hand in hand with salsa!
Samantha @ Health, Happiness & Skinny Jeans says
Ohhhh!!! I love salsa and making it fresh would be ideal. I need to be less lazy and do this ASAP!!
Jenny (Fit Girl Foodie) says
I love the salsa with eggs, what a great way to have breakfast! 😀
About a year ago my boyfriend became obsessed with PW’s salsa and was making it every week! I totally over dosed but I might be ready to have it again soon. haha. Yes, a large food processor would definitely make your life easier!
Sarah @ The Smart Kitchen says
I second that emotion…regarding cilantro.
I love salsa as salad dressing, or mixed with cottage cheese….I tend to also love to scoop it up with cucumber or zucchini/squash slices/rounds…and I LOVE it with carrots (the key is to bite a bit off of the end of a baby carrot so you get a spoon of sorts….)
Rachel (Olalliberry) says
That salsa looks so good, it makes me think of summer! I like it as salad dressing too, either plain or (even better) mixed with a spoonful of yogurt or sour cream.
Sara @ Nourish and Flourish says
Mmm…I love homemade salsa! And I love The Pioneer Woman! This recipe looks fantastic…Can’t wait to make it!
I love salsa on top of chicken and refried beans…with guacamole and sour cream, obviously! 🙂 It also makes a good dressing for salad.

Half of the above commentators “love” salsa. What kind of “love” is it? More on “Love” at http://www.drstathas.com
Corey @ the runner's cookie says
Homemade salsa – such a great idea!! I bet it tasted so fresh. I love putting salsa on salads, eggs, and my “mexican rice bowls” – basically a burrito without the tortilla! Looks like a fabulous recipe!
I heart SALSA! I love restaurant salsa and have been dying to make this recipe. It looks fabulous. 🙂 I eat salsa on everything. I love it on a crispy corn tortilla with an over easy egg. I also love strait up chips and salsa. I will sometimes have chips and salsa for dinner. Yum!
Jane Marie says
Yum!!! I love me some salsa! I like to use it as a low calorie substitute for salad dressing on a mexi-style salad of lettuce, black beans, corn, cheese.
Sarah for Real says
Lol you can say “wah-lah” as much as you want, it’s your blog! I won’t tease you about it if you make me some of this amazing salsa 😉
Melissa @ Be Not Simply Good says
Looks great! I love salsa.
I, too, have a mini food processor. I am not sure I want to upgrade, as I would have to find somewhere to keep the larger one. Yet, it can be challenging working with the mini… What a quandary.
Woah…this looks SOOOOO good. I LOVE home made salsa. I’ve bookmarked!!! Have a great day!!!
Autumn @ Good Eats Girl says
Looks great!! I love salsa that is easy to make! My favorite way to eat salsa is mixed with sour cream with tortilla chips!
Baking Serendipity says
Chips and salsa are one of my favorite snacks 🙂 My grandpa makes amazing homemade salsa, but I’ve never been able to duplicate his recipe to the same perfection…I will definitely have to give this one a try!
I am a fan of it on my eggs or a little bit on my macaroni and cheese
I have always wanted to try that….looks really reeeeeeeeally good….I just need some avocados with it!
How long does this salsa keep? Can it be frozen?
Brittany Dixon says
It should probably be eaten within a week and I’ve never tried freezing it so I’m not sure! If you try it, will you report back? Thanks!
Can you can this salsa? Would it be in a hot water bath straight out of the blender?
Love this! So yummy!
Brittany Dixon says
I’m afraid I don’t know enough about canning to answer that question, but I hope to learn more this coming year and will report back if I try canning it. Wish I could help more! It is delicious though 🙂
I used to get my basic salsa mix at Kroger’s but they did away with it so I must try this ASAP !
Mikayla Bowen says
How many servings does this make?
Brittany Dixon says
Roughly 12 servings. It’s great for a party or to make and use all week long. So delicious!
