What you’ll need to make this recipe.
- Canned diced tomatoes
- Jalapeño pepper
Salsa can be made to your liking, depending on whether you prefer spicy or no spice at all. The seeds can be omitted from the jalapeño if no spice is preferred.
I do like spicy so I leave the seeds in. You can play around with the level of spiciness you like.
Another recommendation is to test the salt levels. I like some salt in my salsa, so I add 2 tbs. If you prefer less saltiness, start with 1 tsp. because you can add more later.

2 – Add the can of diced tomatoes and the rest of the ingredients to the blender and blend for about 30-60 seconds, or until you get the desired consistency.
