What Kind of Tomatoes Are Good for Tomatoes?

Look for a tomato that doesn’t have a lot of seeds – that’s why I like to use Roma Tomatoes.  San Marzano tomotoes are also a good option.

  1. This salsa recipe is making my mouth LITERALLY water. The fire roasted tomatoes and adobo are a nice variation to my usual recipe. Yum.

  2. this salsa looks so good! My husband lived in Mexico for two years, and always complains that my salsa isn’t “authentic”, haha! This one looks authentic. ;) Also, that teal blender (and the lime one!) are rad.

  3. this salsa looks so good!! I can’t wait to make it and it would be even more perfect in that cute blendtec;)
    love your blog!

  4. OH MY GOSH the new Blendtec is SO PRETTY! It looks so deliciously 1950’s. ;-)

    I love your recipes, particularly the omelette ones.

  5. We love salsa and tomatillo salsa is a favorite but this one looks so delicious. I am picking up the ingredients for it tomorrow – it is going on the menu.

    1. This looks so delicious! My husband is from Mexico and would love this! Definitely going to have to try this!!!

  6. I can’t decide between the pomegranate or the seafoam. I think I need both!!! I’ll use the pomegranate during the autumn/winter months and the seafoam in spring/summer.
    I can see why Jim made you choose between the blender or the designer purse Kadee! Excellent choice!!!

  7. I love making salsa but have never thought to do it in my blender! Duh! Lol have to use this recipe next time! Thank you!

  8. I think I originally found this blog by looking up how to cook the perfect steak and loved it so much that I began to follow via facebook and other social media outlets. Since then I have made y’all’s stuffed shells quite a few times and just recently tried the omlet in a bag. Love how healthy, easy, and yummy your recipes are!

  9. This salsa looks amazing! It would go good with the roasted sweet potato and black bean taco recipe on your site which is one of my favorites!!!

  10. I can’t wait to try this salsa! We haven’t found a commercial kind that we love, so I would love to be able to just whip some up!

  11. I’m all for easy and fast, so the salsa recipes are my favorite! Although it would be even easier and faster with the Blendtec…fingers crossed :)

  12. Since I am from California, all of my children and Hubby were exposed to Mexican food from the get-go. Sauza around here is like nectar of the heavens! So this recipe is definitely one I want to add to my arsenal.

  13. Going to try this and give my family a choice of red or green. The Roasted Tomatillo Salsa – Green Salsa would be the other salsa.

  14. would love to win a Blendtec, so I will be able to save lots of times making salsa and etc.etc. I guess I will have to make this salsa the old way for now. thanks for the recipe

    I love Homemade Chipotle Salsa recipe especially because of tomato, lime, cilantro ingredients whose combination is always like heaven :)

    thank you.

  16. This looks so good. I would love to get a Blendtec and try this recipe out. Any would do, but maybe I would like the Orchid Classic 575.

  17. This salsa looks amazing! For some reason, I’ve always been intimidated by salsa. I think I need to go for it!

  18. I just love your salsa recipe! And the bonus is that you can just throw all the ingredients in the Blendtec!! What a great product, and a yummy salsa! :) ty

  19. The salsa recipe is making my mouth water!

    I would love to get the black one to make my own salsa with!! :)

    Thank you!

  20. Left a comment on your Bob’s Guacamole recipe post…that would pair well with this salsa…and a new Blendtec :)

  21. I would love to win the Blend tec in the sea foam colour. My daughter has this blender and LOVES it!

  22. I must make your Apple bundt cake with the cinnamon cream cheese glaze tomorrow! I am going to not be home for a couple of days this weekend and I have to leave something for the hubby to appreciate me for! LOL That looks so good.

  23. In answer to the question of which Blendtech am I drooling over? Since the subject is the designer series…I’m crazy for the red one.

  24. Your salsa recipe is very close to mine. But I have not tried it with chipotle peppers but I will need to try that! Thanks for the chance to win that teal Blendtec!!

  25. My favorite way to eat salsa – smeared on a baked potato and topped with sour cream.

    I would love to have a blendtec someday!

  26. This recipe is what I love! I have been wanting a blender for so long just so I can make stuff like this. And, because all the times watching Rick Bayless on tv. How I love Mexican cuisine.

  27. Your salsa recipe definitely sounds better than mine and is one I definitely have to try! Love the adobo and fire roasted tomatoes. It’s my favorite, right now!

  28. I really liked the Chicken Poblano Queso Blanco recipe, I made it as soon as you added it onto your website.

  29. This looks amazing, I have been wanting a Blendtec for awhile now and your recent posts are pushing me closer to splurging!

  30. Wow! First off, this recipe is drool worthy.
    Secondly, everything looks so fresh because of the blue blender!

  33. I’ve never made salsa with chipotle before but this looks amazing! I’m going to try this next time I make salsa :)

  34. As soon as I got to your page I couldn’t believe all of the wonderful foods and recipes. The pics are fantastic! I’m sure they taste just as wonderful! I want to try cauliflower pizza for sure. I’ve seen this on The Doctors also! Your ice cream bars like mango carrot were also great. I need to find a healthy desert. The eggs and tortillas looked great! everything…!! I’m a fan and want your emails!

  35. I love Mexican food! I definitely love the roasted red pepper enchiladas with homemade tortillas. I would eat those and this salsa all up. Making my mouth water right now.

  36. I think this salsa might be my new go-to salsa. I made it tonight and it was the perfect compliment to my sweet potato tacos
