5 Minute Salsa

5 Minute Salsa

This Monday is Cinco de Mayo and I was thinking about it today when I realized that I have never, ever posted my go-to 5 minute salsa recipe on here before. I do not know how I have managed to overlook something like that but apparently my memory is not what it used to be because I know I meant to do this at least two other times now. Luckily though this is easily remedied.

This salsa recipe is so easy to do that anyone can make it. Literally, this could easily be the first recipe someone ever does on their own and it will give them such kitchen confidence and since it takes only five minutes you will want to make it all of the time. My favorite snack is this salsa with some really good and crunchy tortilla chips. It is my absolute weakness in the food world and my biggest comfort food. My oldest son and I have sat and had many a chat over a bowl of this salsa or munched on it while we are waiting for our tamales to steam because yeah, they go hand in hand for us.

  1. 1/3 c. Spanish onion, chopped
  2. 1 14.5 oz. can of diced tomatoes
  3. 1 4 oz. can of fire roasted jalapenos (I use La Victoria brand)
  4. 1/2 tsp. salt
  5. 1 tbsp. vinegar
  6. 1/4 tsp. cumin
  1. Add all of the ingredients to the blender or food processor except for the jalapenos. For the jalapeno, using a measuring spoon measure 1 tbsp. for mild salsa, 2-3 for medium salsa or 3+ tbsp for hot salsa. These are level tablespoons, not rounded. If you are unsure start with one and add more until you reach the desired level of heat. Pulse all of the ingredients for 20-30 seconds or until mixed.
  2. Refrigerate until ready to use and be sure to refrigerate any leftovers.
  1. Spanish onions are a sweeter and lighter in flavor than a yellow onion. If you are unable to find a Spanish onion at your market then you can substitute yellow onion.

We have now kicked off Cinco de Mayo but you will definitely need more food than just some chips and salsa. Some meats, a side dish and desserts are definitely in order to celebrate Mexican heritage and pride! Pair all of this with some Mexican beer, tequila and/or margaritas and this is sure to be one fun-filled meal.
