On The Border "Restaurant Style" Salsa

This salsa brings all the boys to the yard.
I like to bring my work wolfpack coworkers leftovers (aka "lefties" if you work at Match.com) of my recipes to assess and hopefully enjoy. This past week when I brought a container of this salsa for the girls to try, I was a little weary as this crowd is die-hard for Tex-Mex. But when they gave the chips a little dip in the flavor pool, with a gleam in their eyes they decided it tasted like OTB... On The Border, only the most highly acclaimed Mexican restaurant this side of the office building. It was then I teared up. Haha just kidding but really, this salsa is like, totally On The Border and Off The Hook. :) Throw everything in the food processor or blender and you're good-to-go! 

On The Border "Restaurant Style" Salsa

Prep Time: 5 mins | Cook Time: 0 mins | Makes 4 cups of salsa

adapted from Pioneer Woman

  • 1/2 onion, roughly diced
  • 1 can whole tomatoes, with juices
  • 2 cans Rotel, Original variety for Medium salsa
  • 4 cloves garlic, roughly minced
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and roughly diced
  • 1 cup cilantro (a big handful or two of the bunch), chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 tsp. salt (to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp. sugar
The Steps
  1. Blend away: Toss all ingredients into a food processor or blender. Pulse until desired thickness ("Restaurant Style" is very smooth with little to no chunks!)

  2. Season: Taste and add more salt if necessary, depending on the saltiness of your tortilla chips.
