The is our favorite Homemade Salsa Recipe and we make it all the time. It is easy enough to whip up for a snack and it is seriously so good. Since you only need a few ingredients, it is a breeze to make.

My kids think it tastes just like restaurant style salsa so I think that means we have a winner! The recipe calls for diced canned tomatoes but you can substitute fresh if you prefer.

What do you need to make easy homemade salsa?

You will need a food processor. This is the food processor I have and it is so handy.

I also have a lemon juicer and it is nice because it catches the seeds and gets every last bit of juice. Just another little gadget that helps make life easier.

More tips for the best homemade salsa:

If you like a spicier salsa, add in an extra jalapeno. This will heat things up if you like hot salsa.

Try adding in ¼ teaspoon cumin for a smoky flavor.

You can also use fresh roma tomatoes in this recipe instead of canned. Just use about 4 cups of diced fresh tomatoes in replace of the canned.

I like to use fresh tomatoes in the summer when they are plentiful. It is a great way to use up tomatoes when you have an abundance.

Why is my homemade salsa foamy?

This can happen due to the air bubbles that gets in the salsa while blending. Let it sit a few minutes and the foam should dissipate.
