You may think you have a favorite homemade salsa recipe but I can pretty much guarantee you’ll change your mind once you taste this fire roasted salsa/strong>. I love it because it reminds me of a true restaurant-style salsa and isn’t hard to make. Plus it has a super fresh taste and you can vary the heat by the type of RO*TEL tomatoes you buy (mild, original, hot). You could even throw in a bit of diced jalapeno pepper if you so desire.

My family doesn’t desire so I stick with original Rotel and very little cayenne.

Another thing I love about this fresh homemade salsa recipe is it requires only a small cutting board, sharp knife and a food processor (or awesome blender). That’s it! No hand dicing or mincing—just a few chunks of onion and bell pepper thrown in and you’re good to go.

This salsa is seriously one of the easiest and tastiest homemade salsa recipes you’ll ever pair with your favorite tortilla chips!

If you’re game to try a salsa recipe that’s as addictive as crack cocaine, whip up a batch of this cowboy salsa (aka cowboy caviar). You can thank me later.
