Easy Salsa

If you like salsa, you must make this. It is the best salsa I have ever had, it tastes fresh, and it's easy. My mom originally got this recipe from Sunset Magazine back in the late 80s or early 90s. She made it for my wedding reception and the guests raved about it. Every time I make it I get compliments.

The best part about this recipe is how easy it is. All you need is a can of Mexican Style Stewed Tomatoes, onion, garlic, cilantro, lemon juice, and Tobasco Sauce. That's it!

The second best thing is that it stays fresh for several days in the refrigerator. You can add more or less cilantro, Tobasco, onion and/or garlic depending on your tastes. It's pretty hard to screw it up. 

Just make sure you have plenty of chips on hand if you're going to make this stuff. Yum!

Here's the recipe card. Enjoy!


  1. I made your salsa recipe this weekend. After many failed attempts of making a salsa, this one was a winner! Thanks for the recipe.

  2. I am attempting to save this recipe to my recipe file. I have saved your other recipes successfully but this one won't work. [I left click on the others and then 'save pic as...' but when I left click on the Salsa Recipe, nothing happens. Am I doing something wrong or is this fixable? Thank you for the beautiful cards.

  3. I am always having my hubbie get me some from carlos o'kelleys because I don't like store bought. I will definitely try yours it looks delicious!
