  • Ready In

  1. Place the onion in a bowl, and set aside. In a blender, place tomato sauce, jalapeno peppers, serrano pepper, garlic, lime juice, salt, and pepper. Blend well. Place the cilantro into the blender, and pulse several times to chop the cilantro. Do not over blend. Pour the tomato sauce mixture into the bowl with the onion, stir well to combine, and refrigerate at least 1 hour to blend flavors before serving.


  • Editor's Note
  • For a mild salsa, seed the peppers and scrape out all the interior veins before blending; for a hot salsa, leave the seeds and veins in.

Tasty, I used one can of diced tomatos and one can sauce, the flavors all came together perfectly. Thank you

Made half the recipe. This didn't have enough acid for me, so after blending I added 1 tbs lime juice. Sadly, I had to cut out all but 1 jalapeƱo, and that was small, because my mom can't take a...

Love it! I've made this recipe several times now. Got rave reviews from guests. I LOVE it! Except that I truly can only handle mild spiciness. "Medium" pace salsa is a bit much for me. SO, I jus...
