This recipe is my easy, weeknight , time crunched, crowd-pleasing salsa recipe. This recipe is almost my Aunt Jana’s recipe. Her recipe actually calls for garlic powder but after multiple attempts with the powder we’ve decided we prefer fresh garlic but if you happened to be out, use about 1 tsp of powder. This is a super simple recipe and at first glance you’ll wonder where the onion & cilantro are, but we don’t usually miss it in this recipe! And really, I rarely have cilantro on hand; and the whole point of this recipe is to be quick & easy!
We typically use four deveined & seeded jalapenos for a good jalapeno flavor but a mild overall flavor. Leave some of those seeds in there though, if you’d like a little more heat! Looking for a more flavorful salsa? Try my Roasted Tomato Salsa!
