Mari’s Blender Salsa

Appetizers, Food, Sauces

I’ve always loved Mexican Food, even when I didn’t know real Mexican Food, I loved ‘taco night.’ Thankfully, I grew up to learn what real Mexican Food is and realize that it is sooo much better than the Americanized version I grew up with. I went to great restaurants introduced to me by even better people, learned to cook authentic Mexican dishes from dear friends, and eventually gained the confidence to give those recipes my own twist. This recipe is my take on my soul sista, Mari’s, homemade salsa.

This recipe is quick, simple, and deeply satisfying with chips, used in another dish, or to top your favorite recipe. I love this recipe because it is so quick and low prep. No tedious dicing and chopping – and if you’re like me, worrying if your pieces are the same size!


  • 5 Roma tomatoes
  • 1/2 of a large white onion, quartered
  • 1 tsp garlic powder – minced fresh garlic is great as well!
  • 3 Tbsp lime juice
  • 3 Tbsp fresh Cilantro


  1. In a medium saucepan, place tomatoes and fill with water until completely covering the tomatoes bring to a boil and let the tomatoes boil until the skin begins to peel.
  2. Drain the water and allow tomatoes to cool briefly.
  3. Combine all ingredients in blender and blend for 30 seconds to 1 minute (if you have a high speed blender).
