This Restaurant Style Blender Salsa Recipe is perhaps, the most sought after kind of salsa. It’s lauded as the authentic ones. It’s often tagged as the Original Pioneer Woman Salsa or Homemade Restaurant Style Salsa. 

We want the excellence and culinary experience of the restaurant at home, and this salsa recipe satisfies that exponentially. With the ease of making this and the resulting taste, you can ditch buying commercial salsa. Best of all, making your own salsa gives you the allowance to adjust ingredients to your taste. Mild or fiery taste– it’s your pick!

How quintessential salsa is! The mixture of tomatoes, onion, and chiles is a great healthy add-on to a balanced diet. It’s a wonderful sauce nourishing you with vitamins, minerals, potassium, and lycopene. It’s the kind of food you’ve always wanted: easy to make, non-fat, fresh, delicious, and truly guilt-free.

We love to have restaurant style salsa around as a dip to our chips whenever we watch TV– either binging onto your favorite series or as you cheer for your favorite sports team. It’s also a delightful snack when you’re just chilling out in the living room (or wherever, actually) with your friends. Yes, salsa is such a nice thing to serve for entertaining friends and guests because it caters to anyone with dietary preferences.

Best of all, this Restaurant Style Blender Salsa Recipe has a scrumptious taste without the vinegar, which most canned salsa has and what a lot of people don’t want in their salsa.

Calories 17kcal


  • 38 ounces fresh whole tomatoes
  • 1 cup green chilies
  • ¼ cup chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 whole jalapeño quartered and sliced thin, seeds removed
  • ¼ teaspoon sugar optional
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro more to taste
  • ½ whole lime juiced


  • Combine all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and pulse until you get the consistency of a fine purée– I personally do around 10 pulses.
  • Refrigerate the mixture for at least an hour before serving.


  • This recipe suggests a 12-cup food processor as it’s a large batch. If your food processor’s capacity is lower though, simply divide the recipe into two or three, or mix everything together in a large bowl and run them in the food processor in batches.
