Homemade Salsa Recipe

Making my own salsa always seemed a little bit overwhelming to me, but one evening I wanted some salsa and we didn't have any but we had plenty of fresh vegetables so I went for it!

It was nothing like I thought it would be; all I had to do was chop, chop, chop and mix everything together! My husband and I loved it! It came out of the fridge a few times that night and it was nearly gone by the end of the evening.


  • 3 tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 5 mild chilies, diced (seeds removed)
  • 3/4 a bundle of cilantro, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, diced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice (I might have used 3 tsp or      so...)

In a medium bowl, stir together tomatoes, onion, chiles, cilantro, bell pepper, garlic, salt and lime juice. Chill for one hour in the refrigerator before serving; this allows all the flavors to mix together and a little liquid to form so the salsa is not quite so chunky (which I personally like).

You can also add pretty much any delicious, fresh chopped veggies that you want and it will most likely be good.

Here are all the ingredients you will need to make the exact salsa I made:

I cut all my veggies up to be the size of the chopped chilies you see below:

I hope you enjoy this salsa as much as we did! It turned in to a little bit of a midnight snack for us. Enjoy!
