The first time Scott and I hosted a get together at our place, he made the best homemade salsa and queso dips. At the time, I had no idea that he had such a knack for combining flavors.
By request, we made and brought both dips to family gatherings and parties for years, and I still hear about how much they miss his fresh salsa dip since we moved.
Each batch comes out a little different because he continuously experiments by adding new ingredients. So far, the recipe below has been the most consistent and comes out to a medium-hot heat.
It’s extremely easy to prepare and is only made with fresh ingredients!
5 ripe vine tomatoes
1/2 yellow onion
1 green bell pepper
1 serrano pepper (with seeds)
1 clove garlic
juice of 1 lime
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. cumin
lots of cilantro
Chop everything up and let it sit in the refrigerator for extra flavor!
We used a salsa maker – since Scott is a complete gadget junkie and, of course, owns one – but you can use a food processor if you have one and like it less chunky.
Salsa is great for more than just a dip with chips too. Sometimes I will use it as dressing on Southwest salads, on top of vegetables, and even scrambled into my eggs to give them an extra spice!
If you aren’t sure about the spiciness, take out the seeds of the serrano pepper to make it medium or use half of it for a more of a mild heat.
Throw a batch together for a party or even just for your family to snack on and keep it in the refrigerator for up to a week. Enjoy!
Questions of the Day
• What do you enjoy putting salsa on (besides chips!)?
• Mild, Medium, Hot, or Super Spicy? Which one’s for you?

I love a good hot salsa on everything!! Spices up chicken or great for a salad dressing. I want to plant a salsa garden next year. I might need to throw some serrano peppers in the mix too. 🙂
I have been telling Scott that I want to plant a garden for ages! Maybe one of these days it will actually happen… 😉
This sounds like a yummy recipe! I love adding salsa to my eggs or I mix it with plain greek yogurt or cottage cheese for a snack or to use as a salad dressing.
I’ll have to try this out since I love the taste of homemade salsa but most recipes I have seen call for a million ingredients!
Sam @ PancakeWarriors
Wow this looks restaurant quality! So awesome that you have a salsa maker – how cool! I love salsa on my salad – takes it to a new level when I’m craving something spicy! I would love to make my own salsa for this – thanks for the recipe 🙂
Thank you! I’m the same way. Whenever I order a taco salad I always ask for salsa to give it some spice!
Amanda @ Positively Amanda
I’m a huge fan of homemade salsa! looks like a delicious recipe!
I used to eat salsa with a spoon. I still do, at restaurants. I love me some chips, but I really am all about the salsa. And I love serrano peppers–totally different from habanero and jalapeno, and oh so good
Ha, I definitely have done that before! 😉
Lauren @ The Bikini Experiment
Salsa is one of my favorite salad dressings! Thanks for sharing the recipe.
It’s tied right up there with hummus for me!
Yum! Pinned this and can’t wait to try it.
Woo hoo! Let me know if you make it!

Mmm salsa! I’ve never made my own yet, but I JUST opened a new jar of my favorite today! Green Mountain Gringo (Mild)! So Delish!
