Homemade Salsa

Did you notice all the yuckies in store-bought salsa? All the unpronouncable ingredients and sugar.. now tell me why salsa (the one that's not SUPPOSED to be sweet) has freaking sugar in it?
Salsa is just as versatile as you can imagine, you can literally throw everything in there. We like ours a little spicy, and our favorite combination is:
1 can of diced tomatoes
1 small can of green chillies
(if those two items are in season, get them fresh!!)
1 tsp. cumin
a squeeze of lemon juice
1 tsp. dried cilantro (i'm not a huge fan of cilantro, but use fresh if you like it!)
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup sweet onion
1 clove garlic
Combine all ingredients and pulse a few times in food processor.
Enjoy knowing all the ingredients in your salsa!


  1. Canned tomatoes also contain sugar. Besides, manufacturers line cans with a plastic resin full of BPA and other carcinogens. The acid in the tomatoes breaks down the lining, making this canned food even more dangerous.

  2. Yes, definitely use fresh tomatoes when in season, however there are BPA, organic options as well.
