Super Easy Blender Salsa

 I really enjoy making salsa. When I need a quick topping for sweet potato tacos, or even to put on top of baked potatoes, I pull out the blender and whip this up.

I make this salsa at least once a week. I whip out my blender and get to work. The great thing about this salsa is you can make it mild or spicy.
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1-2 dates (Pitted)
  • 2 cloves of garlic (peeled)
  • 3 green onions
  • 1/2 bunch of cilantro (stems and leaves)
  • 2 cans Muir Glen NSA fire roasted tomatoes
  • 1 poblano chile
  • 2 jalapeños
  • black pepper to taste (freshly ground)
  1. In your blender container add 1 can of the tomatoes
  2. Split the chiles in half lengthwise and add them to the blender.
  3. Add the garlic, dates, cilantro, ground cumin and green onions
  4. Place the lid on the blender and quickly pulse to get all of the ingredients incorporated.
  5. Add the remaining can of tomatoes and puree the salsa until it is as smooth or chunky as you prefer.
  6. Season your salsa with black pepper as needed.

For a more mild salsa: remove the seeds from all or some of the chiles.

I like to add a few dashes of smoked hot paprika or chipotle powder to boost the smokey flavor of the salsa. If you are using the chipotle powder be aware it will add heat!
