It literally takes no time at all to make this salsa.  The fire-roasted tomatoes add a perfect smoky flavor to this fresh-tasting salsa.

This salsa beats store-bought and Mexican restaurant salsa any day!

Fire Roasted Salsa in a food processor

All you have to do is chop the onion, jalapeno, and garlic. Chopping the garlic cloves will help them process better in the food processor.

Place the tomatoes, onion, garlic, green chilies, cilantro, lime juice, jalapenos, salt, and pepper in the blender or food processor and give it a whirl or few.

Our Strawberry Shortcake is a great dessert for any meal!

  • 29 ounces fire roasted tomatoes, drained (2 – 14.5 oz cans)
  • 4 ounces green chilies, diced (1 small can)
  • 1 small red onion, diced
  • 1 bunch cilantro (you can use less if desired)
  • 1 lime (juice)
  • 2 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • 1-2 teaspoons salt (to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 jalapeños, seeded and diced (1 or 2)


  • Add all ingredients to a blender or food processor and pulse until you reach desired consistency.
  • For best flavor place the salsa in a jar or container and chill for 1-2 hours or longer.
  • Store chilled in airtight container.


If you like a spicier salsa, don’t seed the jalapeno. I LOVE cilantro so I add a ton. Decrease the amount if you aren’t as fond of cilantro as I am.

    We love homemade salsa, we can’t keep it in the frig! I’ve never used the fire-roasted tomatoes, I’m definitely going to look for them at the store! I agree that canned tomatoes make the most flavorful salsa, I like the fresh for pico de gallo, but canned for salsa! I am going to try your recipe, it looks so delish!5 stars

    This salsa looks absolutely wonderful!! I have to try it this week. I get so tired of paying so much for a bottle of salsa and it lasts one day – at least for a family of five. I will pass on this recipe. Thanks for sharing.

    Ohh man. I love a good salsa recipe! Part of what holds me back from making my own is dealing with the tomatoes so this looks like a great way to me to get past that!5 stars
