Salsa de Mayo

Salsa de Mayo

A basic salsa based on Chili's famous salsa.


  1. 2 14.5 cans tomatoes & green chilies
  2. 2 14.5 cans whole tomatoes (plus the juice!)
  3. 3 to 5 jalapeno peppers, seeded (reserve seeds)
  4. 1/2 cup onion (white or yellow)
  5. 4 to 5 cloves of garlic (more if desired)
  6. 2 teaspoons cumin
  7. 1/2 to 1 teaspoon honey
  8. Salt to taste


  1. In a food processor blend onions, garlic, and jalapenos for just a bit. You don't want to process them too much. Just until they are "chopped."
  2. Add all the cans of tomatoes with the salt, honey, and cumin.
  3. Process until well-blended (do not puree!)
  4. Add reserved jalapeno seeds TO TASTE! Not too many... they are hot!
  5. Salt to taste.
  6. Chill for an hour or two (if desired - this is not absolutely necessary, but it does allow the flavors to come together).

We use a large Cuisinart to make this salsa.
• Everything is to taste! Sometimes we add more cumin, sometimes more salt, sometimes more garlic. Don't be afraid to experiment.
• We love to serve this with blue corn chips.
