Easy Blender Salsa – Low-Calorie, Gluten-Free

Making salsa in the blender is simple and quick. The results are delicious salsa you’ll want to keep eating. Low in calories and delicious.

 

I love fresh salsa which also happens to be my favorite part about eating out at Mexican restaurants. If you’ve never made homemade salsa before, I’m going to show you how simplistic it is in ingredients and how quick it is to make. I make my salsa in the blender, and it literally takes 5 minutes from start to finish, with very little prep work.

 

What foods go with salsa?

Salsa is good with a variety of food. It is great as a dip for tortilla chips, and as a topping on tacos, fajitas, burritos, quesadillas and enchiladas. It also tastes great on scrambled eggs.

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. 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 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.

 

To make the salsa, start by roughly chopping the onion, jalapeño and garlic cloves. Add this, along with a can of diced tomatoes to the blender and blend for about 30 seconds, or until you get the desired consistency. This salsa pairs perfectly with my air fryer tortilla chips

How long does homemade salsa last?

Homemade salsa lasts for about 5 to 7 days in an air tight container in the fridge. Homemade salsa can also be stored in the freezer in a covered airtight container or heavy-duty freezer bag for about 2 months.
