Restaurant Style Salsa

This Restaurant Style Salsa recipe is the best one I’ve ever made at home.  Scoop it up with chips or use it to smother everything from eggs to enchiladas.

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.

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.  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 restaurant style salsa fixes.  🙂

Watch this quick video to see how easy it is to make your own salsa at home (and watch the video until the end to see how quickly it disappears haha):

Making Restaurant Style Salsa at home is SO EASY! I had my husband, 911 Dad, help me make this video to prove it. (Watch until the very end to see how quickly it disappears- haha!)
