This easy Chunky Salsa recipe with fresh tomatoes is just one of the many ways you can make authentic salsa. What I love about this homemade salsa recipe is that it is tasty, fresh and filling, with no added preservatives. It is made with nearly all fresh ingredients which make it a healthy condiment.
We often eat this with tacos, enchiladas, tostadas or with some tortilla chips. In fact we ate this the other day when we were catching up on our episodes of The Voice. We tape these shows during the week and watch on the weekend so we can run through the commercials.
Remember I am all about making the most of time and using your DVR can save you many hours.
I also love how inexpensive it is to make. Tomatoes on the vine were on sale this week as were jalapeno and Serrano chilis. I think because Cinco de Mayo is nearly here, the grocery stores put these ingredients on sale so all the more reason to try this homemade salsa if you have never made it before. You can make this one without a food processor.
This chunky tomato salsa recipe is perfect for meat, fish and chicken. If you are looking to cut some heavy sauces from your foods, consider topping them with this salsa instead.

How do you like to eat salsa?
Yours looks so delicious! Sometimes I go to parties with the canned stuff and it's not nearly as fresh as this. I want some!
Thank you Tamara! Yes, it tastes so much better than canned salsa!
