Homemade Salsa

Betty Graves


Homemade Salsa is so much better than the store bought of which I will not buy after trying this recipe. It taste so fresh. I do however take the membrane and the seeds out of the jalepeno pepper.

How to Make Homemade Salsa


  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor. Pulse until you get desired consistency (was about 10 pulses for me). Refrigerate for at least one hour, and then serve with your favorite tortilla chips.
  2. *Note 1: This makes a large quantity so use at least an 11-cup food processor, or work in batches
  3. *Note 2: If you prefer a milder salsa, remove the seeds and membrane from the jalapeno before adding it to the food processor.
