I love Mexican food. There’s no denying that. I grew up eating Tex-Mex so it’s in my blood. Now that I live in the Midwest and I’m no longer living in Tex-Mex land, I crave Mexican food on a daily basis. Luckily, I can make a Tex-Mex feast at home! My Quick & Easy Tomato Chipotle Salsa is a must for any Mexican food night at my house. Fresh tomatoes, cilantro, onion, and peppers mixed in a blender for a quick and easy homemade salsa! This is a Weight Watchers friendly recipe and half a cup of salsa is 0 SmartPoints.
There is nothing better than going to a Mexican restaurant, eating chips and salsa, and drinking a margarita. That was kind of a regular thing for me back when we lived in Texas. Now that we are in the Midwest, my husband and I just recreate those nights at home! It’s actually more fun that way. No need to dress up! Anytime I cook Mexican food at home, I have to make homemade salsa. I’ve bought so many different kinds of jarred salsa but it’s just not as good as homemade. Making salsa at home is so rewarding because you can taste the freshness of the ingredients.
There are a ton of recipes out there for homemade salsa, but what makes my salsa a bit different from the rest is the chipotle pepper. It’s super subtle in the salsa, but gives it a level of deep flavor you wouldn’t be able to get without adding this pepper. The title to this recipe says it all… it’s quick and easy to make!!
To a food processor (or blender), just add seeded roma tomatoes, jalapenos, white and green onion, chipotle pepper, liquid from canned chipotle peppers, garlic powder, salt, lime juice, and cilantro. Blend until you reach the consistency you want then enjoy! I like my salsa little chunky but you can blend the salsa as long as you’d like. I recommend making this salsa a day before you want to serve. The longer the salsa sits in the refrigerator, the deeper the flavors develop.
Quick & Easy Tomato Chipotle Salsa is a must for any Mexican food night at home. Fresh tomatoes, cilantro, onion, and peppers mixed in a blender for a quick and easy homemade salsa! This salsa will stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to one week!! Fresh and packed with flavor without any preservatives!
Serve with my Baked Tortilla Chips!
I hope you enjoy these bites of flavor!
