The Pioneer Woman is one of my favorite cooks out there.Our cooking style is similar, so I've tried quite a few of her recipes. Like this super yummy Restaurant Style Salsa. My family is quite fond of Mexican style food, so this is one of their favorite snacks.
This is an oldie from my site that I first published back in 2011. The recipe is still the same, and is a tried and true family favorite that I make often. The original photos were lost in a website move several years ago though, so I thought it was high time I posted new ones.
Does anyone else love chips and salsa as much as my family does?If the answer is yes, then you are going to love this quick and easy salsa. It's fresh and smooth just like the kind you'd get in a Spanish restaurant, with small pieces of tomatoes, onion, and cilantro throughout, and just enough heat to warm your mouth, and give it a little tingle. It couldn't be easier to make either. You just toss all of the ingredients into a blender or food processor, pulse a few times and voila, delicious salsa in less than 10 minutes!

Restaurant Style Salsa
1-28 ounce can diced tomatoes, (drained, reserve juice)
1/2 to 1 - 10 ounce can Rotel (diced tomatoes and green chilies)

1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon ground cumin, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/4 teaspoon sugar, or to taste
Juice of 1 lime
Add all of the ingredients to a blender or food processor and pulse, adding some of the reserved tomato juice if needed, to achieve the consistency you would like. (Add half a can of the Rotel for a mild salsa, or the whole can for a spicy kick).
Test seasonings with a tortilla chip and adjust as needed.
Refrigerate salsa for at least one hour for the flavors to mingle. Serve with tortilla chips.
Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
Cook's Note: This recipe makes a large amount, so it’s perfect to serve at a party, as a game day appetizer, or to keep in the refrigerator for snacking.
