Easy Blender Salsa Low-Calorie

 

I love salsa, especially fresh, homemade salsa. Going out to eat at Mexican restaurants, the chips and salsa before dinner is my favorite part. In fact, I usually eat way too many chips and salsa. Then, by the time my food comes I’m barely hungry. I know I can’t be alone here, right?

 

If you’ve never made homemade salsa before, I’m going to show you how. I’m very simplistic in ingredients and it’s quick to make. I use the blender when making mine, and it literally takes 5 minutes from start to finish, with very little prep work.

Salsa can be made to your liking, depending on whether you prefer spicy or no spice at all. In my recipe, the seeds can be omitted from the jalapeño if no spice is preferred. However, I do like spicy so in my case the seeds stay. You can play around with the level of spiciness you like. Another recommendation is to test the salt levels. I like to taste the salt in my salsa, so I add 2 tbs. If you prefer less saltiness, start with 1 tsp. because you can add more later.

 

Salsa is a great addition to Mexican cuisine, and beyond. It isn’t only great for dipping chips in, it also makes a great topping for tacos, burritos, tostadas, and more. The possibilities are endless. With salsa being so simple to make, I prefer a homemade version over store bought. You can store the salsa in an air tight container for several day in the fridge.
