It’s time to enjoy a great snack with some warm tortilla chips and Restaurant Style Salsa!
While I absolutely love my Homemade Chunky Salsa, my husband loves the smooth restaurant style salsa. So, in hopes of making his day, I decided to adapt my chunky salsa into a restaurant style salsa. The result?
The salsa lasted maybe 3 days and he had eaten the entire jar!
How do you make Restaurant Style Salsa?
He has been raving on about it for days, so I’m planning to can several jars of this to keep on hand for him as a snack item plus for meals that include salsa! It’s such an easy salsa to make, and I really enjoy making homemade salsa.
Homemade Salsa just taste so much better to me than what you find at the store!
This is one of my go-to items for snacking. It’s so delicious. I have even found that I can use a bean based tortilla chips, which is a lot lower on calories for dipping.
That means I can enjoy it as a good snack after the kids go to bed too.
That seems to be the time I always want to have a snack. Maybe it’s because no one is stealing my food?
It’s certainly a regular item on our menu each week. I love it cold too. Do you have a preference when it comes to salsa?
Should you use a food processor for Restaurant Style Salsa?
All I did on this was use my food processor and change out the tomatoes that I used from the chunky salsa and pureed it into a nice smooth salsa!
The food processor is what will make this salsa smooth like the restaurant.
Now are you ready for this with some tasty chips or maybe even warm tortillas?
My husband could live on salsa and tortillas, so he would totally warm up some tortillas to go with this.
Enjoy this Restaurant Style Salsa and eat up!
