Spicy Lime Salsa

Pin It
In the summer, just give me an outdoor patio, a big bowl of salsa, some salty chips and a margarita and call it a day. That's one of the best combinations in my book and it's the perfect way to kick off summer.

In honor of Cinco de Mayo, I'm sharing this spicy lime salsa recipe with you. It's so delicious and even tastes similar to many authentic restaurant salsas I've tried before. The green chilies and jalapeno really kick it up a notch, but the other ingredients mellow it out so it's not too overwhelming. I like that this is made in the food processor because I was able to make it the consistency I like. I prefer a few small chunks, so that's what I ended up with. If you want a chunkier consistency, only pulse it a few times and then you're ready to go. Enjoy!

  • 1 (14.5 oz) can no-salt-added diced tomatoes
  • 1 (4.25 oz) can green chilies
  • 1/2 cup red onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime (about 3 tbsp.)
  • 1/2 jalapeno, seeds removed and chopped
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. cumin
Place all ingredients in the bowl of your food processor. Pulse until just combined for chunky salsa or pulse more for smoother salsa. Store in an airtight container in the fridge until ready to enjoy!
