Easy and Delicious 6-Ingredient Salsa


I haven’t met anyone who didn’t love an easy recipe. I personally love finding recipes that don’t require a ton of ingredients and don’t require much involvement. This salsa only has six ingredients!

This salsa is perfect for snacking, for Taco Tuesday, or simply for a friend as a gift–just add a bag of chips!

Disclaimer: This is my mom’s recipe, and like most Mexican cooks, the measurements are not exact. I did my best to provide measurements. However, I would suggest starting with less and then adding more as needed.

This will make about 2 cups.

  • 2 large jalapenos
  • ⅓ bunch of cilantro
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes (14.5 ounces)
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons of garlic salt
  • 1 Tablespoon of lemon pepper
  • 1 bunch of green onions

Cut jalapenos and remove seeds. For a spicier taste, leave seeds. Cut the green onions into chunks. Throw all items and seasoning in the food processor or blender. Once it’s blended, take a chip to try salsa. Adjust seasoning if needed.
