Chunky Blender Salsa

Chunky Blender Salsa



This chunky blender salsa takes just minutes to make, and is really so addicting. I kept this recipe chunky and loaded with onions, jalapeño, tomatoes and fresh cilantro. It’s perfect for dunking tortillas chips, piling on a taco or adding to a breakfast burrito. Make this on the weekend, and snack on it throughout the week!


A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to review a Blendtec Designer 725 blender and let me just say that I’m in love. I had no idea how often I would use it. In fact, it has a permanent place on our counter because I’m using it daily! It’s really a surprising multi-tasking kitchen tool and I can’t wait to share some of the recipes I’ve been working on with it. One of my favorite parts of the Blendtec Designer 725 is that it’s fun to use. It keeps track of your blends and gives you encouraging messages. It’s the smartest appliance I’ve ever used! The other one of my favorite features is the cleaning preset. Add a cup or two of hot water and a drop of soap and hit the clean button. It washes the blender out for you!

I was so excited to try out the Blendtec Designer 725, and I’m even more excited to be offering one as a giveaway to a lucky reader! Just follow the Rafflecopter prompts at the end of the post to be entered to win!


Chunky Blender Salsa


Ok, back to the salsa! Just throw all the ingredients in, starting with the tomatoes and lime juice. Start with the liquid at the bottom of the blender for the best blending. In order to keep the salsa chunky, I gave the onion just a rough chop in half so i didn’t have to over blend the salsa. Just give a few pulses so it stays chunky. If you are using a powerful blender like the Blendtec, it only takes seconds to get the right consistency.

See, perfectly chunky and delicious. I just can’t get enough of the fresh taste of homemade salsa!
