Have you tried making your own salsa at home? If you haven’t, you definitely should because you are missing a lot! I used to buy the canned ones at the stores, but when I tasted this Mexican restaurant-style salsa recipe by Something’s Cooking With Alpa, I never went back. The burst of flavors is just way too good.



  • eight juicy ripe tomatoes
  • one medium-sized onion
  • one green chili (or half fresh jalapeno)
  • two dried red chilies
  • four garlic cloves
  • 1/4 cup of cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • salt to taste
  • juice of half a lemon

Note: you can add more chilies if you can handle the spice

Step 1:

Prepare the vegetables. Finely dice four tomatoes, medium-sized onion, green chili, four cloves of garlic, and cilantro. Once they are ready, add them in a large mixing bowl. Mix until well combined.

Step 2:

Season it with 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder and salt to taste. Mix until well incorporated. The salt will start to draw out the moisture from the onion and soften them.

Step 3:

Place the mixture in a refrigerator to let it cool.

Step 4:

Place a pan over heat. Add four juicy tomatoes and two red chilies. Roast them until the chilies change in color. They should be a little bit on the darker side. Once you achieved that color, remove them from the pan. Continue roasting your tomatoes and blackened them. Once they are roasted, transfer them to a bowl and let them cool for 10 minutes until they come down to room temperature.

Step 5:

Once the tomatoes are cooled, transfer the roasted tomatoes to a blender or food processor. Remove the stems from the chilies. You can also remove the seeds to reduce heat, then add them to the tomatoes. Blend until smooth.

Step 6:

Get the bowl from the refrigerator, then add the pureed tomatoes. Mix until well combined. Add the juice of the lemon and mix again.
