Restaurant Style Salsa

This post may contain affiliate links. See my full disclosure for further details.

This Restaurant Style Salsa is hands-down my favorite salsa recipe.  I suppose “restaurant-style” depends on which Mexican restaurant you go to, but this is a lot like the salsa served in many of the Mexican restaurants around here.

I like the convenience of the canned tomatoes paired with the other fresh ingredients.  It’s quick and easy, but has a fabulous, fresh flavor!
Add as much or little jalapeno as you like to achieve the desired level of heat. 
This does make a lot of salsa, but leftovers will keep in the refrigerator for several days.

  1. Yum!! And I like this shot a lot too.

  2. this looks so great! I cannot wait to try this this week 🙂 I love Salsa so much, but my husband does not like mexican restaurants so, I need to find a good salsa recipe. Thanks for sharing!

  3. You could definitely see your expertise within the article you write.
    The sector hopes for even more passionate writers like you who are not afraid to say how they believe.
    All the time follow your heart.

  4. I am genuinely thankful to the owner of this
    web site who has shared this great piece of writing at at this place.

  5. Normally I don’t read article on blogs, however I wish to say that this write-up very pressured me to try and do so! Your writing style has been surprised me. Thanks, quite great article.

  6. This recipe looks amazing! However I do not eat a lot of salsa at one time. Can this be frozen?

  7. Can I use tomatoes and green peppers from my garden, and can I can this salsa also ?

  8. I am not a canning expert by any means, but I know salsas or anything tomato based is tricky, but can be done. I would research online about the proper way to do that. And yes, you could use fresh ingredients, but it would be a completely different (but still delicious) salsa.
