I have a relationship with Blendtec that may include compensation or products for review. We have been big Blendtec fans in our house for a long time and I genuinely love this product and their fantastic customer service. As always, all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.
Living in Texas we are lucky to have a lot of Mexican food, or Tex-Mex, restaurants to choose from. I’ve learned that you can immediately tell the caliber of a restaurant by their chips and salsa; I’m pretty sure I cut my teeth on chips and salsa as a baby. My top two favorites, Mia’s and Desperados, are a little ways from me in Dallas. They both have amazing salsa, but are very different from each other. If I need a quick fix we go to Mi Cocina, which is a chain, but really close to my house. They have delicious brisket quesadillas, but their salsa leaves a little to be desired.
Rather than drive to Dallas every time I need a chips and salsa fix, I have found a recipe to make at home that takes no time at all in my Blendtec and is SO good. My kids even eat chips and salsa with their peanut butter and jellies. It’s pretty much a staple in our house.
- 28oz can whole peeled tomatoes
- 10oz can hot Rotel, drained
- 10oz can mild Rotel, drained
- ¼ cup onion, chopped
- 2 jalapenos, quartered
- 2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
- Heaping ¼ tsp cumin
- ¼ tsp salt
- ½ cup cilantro, chopped
- Juice from ½ lime
- Place all ingredients in your blender.
- Blend on the lowest speed for one minute.
- Refrigerate for up to a week.
I couldn’t function in my kitchen without my Blendtec. We use it for everything from protein shakes, smoothies, salsa, to soups. The new Blendtec Designer 725 has so many more settings (like ice cream!) and uses SmartBlend technology, multi-speed pulse, a 100-speed touch slider. I especially love the SmartBlend technology for my protein shakes- sometimes my protein would stick to the sides of my old blender, but now it alerts me when I need to add more liquid. It will also sense and identify potential problems that could interfere with the perfect blend like loading errors, overheating, or air pockets – and then tells you how to fix them. We use our blender every day- definitely worth the investment! I mean, it’s practically saving me money since I don’t have to drive to Dallas for my salsa fixes. 🙂
