Blender salsa is the easiest restaurant style salsa you’ll ever make! Perfect for serving alongside chips and guacamole or for topping your favorite burrito.
I get rave reviews every time I make this. Despite the simple ingredients there’s something really good about this salsa. It’s so easy to make and it makes a lot in a small amount of time so it’s perfect for a party.

Ingredients you need to make this:
- green onion
- canned green chilis
- lemon juice
- diced tomatoes
My favorite diced tomatoes to use are the fire roasted tomatoes. They give the salsa a little more depth that just regular diced tomatoes would give.
If you do not have any fresh lemons or fresh limes, go ahead and substitute bottled lemon or lime juice.
How to make blender salsa:
- Add all ingredients to your blender or food processor and blend for about 15-20 seconds.
This recipe will fill a quart size mason jar with about 1 cup of salsa leftover. If you eat that cup of salsa no one will be the wiser and I certainly won’t tell.
Tips and tricks
For spicier salsa, add additional jalapenos or substitute habanero or serrano peppers for the jalapeno. If you are still looking for something spicier see this breakdown of peppers and their heat indexes.
This salsa will keep for 3-4 days, so you can make it the night before if you are making this for any kind of get together.
