There is one word for chips quick and easy garden fresh salsa. Irresistible.
Sometimes you just need chips and salsa. You can't help it. The salty crunch of a tortilla chip, the juicy tomatoes, and kick of jalapeño. They are the perfect marriage of textures and flavors. And you know it!
This is one of my go-to appetizers or snacks if we have anyone over. For dinner, game night, to hang out or any occasion. It is fast, requires no prepping or cooking and it's a crowd fav!
Making your own batch of quick and easy garden fresh salsa is easier than you would think.
Just a couple simple ingredients, a blender or food processor and you're good to go! I particularly enjoy making a garden fresh salsa batch during the summer when tomatoes are at their peak in flavor and color. We used a couple of romas from our garden as well as some jalapenos and you can just taste the difference. You just can't beat homegrown veggies!
This recipe is easily doubled and completely customizable to the amount of heat you like. I make it pretty spicy around here - using 2 jalapeños and adding a chipotle for an extra flavor kick!
What If I Do Not Like My Salsa Spicy?
But no worries if you're not a fan of heat in your salsa.
- For a mild garden fresh salsa just add 1 jalapeño
- If you like a little heat but not too much, add 1 jalapeño and 1 chipotle pepper. The chipotle give it a nice round flavor profile that is both warm in heat and spice level.
- For the ultimate heat - well, you know what to add! 😉
It takes less than 10 minutes to make and keeps in the refrigerator for a couple of weeks
(if you don't eat it all within the first couple days).
What Can I Use Garden Fresh Salsa On or In?
