This easy restaurant-style blender salsa is easy to whip from from just a few healthy, fresh ingredients. It's great for dipping or to use in any Mexican recipes.
Prepare the homemade salsa ingredients by cutting the tomatoes into quarters, if using ripe fresh tomatoes. Canned tomatoes can be used whole.
Chop the onion and garlic. De-stem and dice jalapeños; remove seeds and white ribs for desired heat level. Keep in mind that you can always add more heat, but salvaging too hot salsa requires more creativity. So keep seeds/ribs to side and blend in later, if you want more heat.
Pick the leaves off the cilantro sprigs. You can add the leaves whole but the stems won't blend up as well, so chop them finely.
