    I’m a woman who loves her salsa.  Once, I even ordered my favorite brand by the case straight from Mexico.  I went through 24 bottles in less than 6 months.

    After dropping some serious dough on bottled tomatoes and accompanying veggies and spices, I decided I needed to make my own for pennies on the dollar.  Money saved on salsa goes straight to saving for bigger and better kitchen appliances…. like Blendtec blenders.

    As you guessed, 3-minutes salsa is literally ready in 3 minutes.  How does this magic work?  I use canned tomatoes and green chiles with fresh onion, garlic, jalapeno and cilantro.

    What does salsa mean? Salsa just means sauce. Any sauce, really. The only constant with salsas is that there is acidity. For this 3-minute salsa, that is the tomato.

    My Blendtec blender does the rest in just a few pulses and voila, fresh salsa tastier than anything you can get in a jar.  By using canned tomatoes and green chiles, you save loads of time on roasted and peeling.

    However, if you are feeling particularly ambitious, you can surely do this yourself, but then you will have 45-minute salsa.

    Blenders aren’t just for smoothies and blended drinks, with a Blendtec you can also make a variety of salsas, sauce and spreads, as well as mix dough and batters.  Simple to use and simple to clean, Blendtecs touch screen show has pre-programmed options for making these items in addition to the ability to operate manually using a slider function.

    If you like this salsa recipe, you’ll also love these!
