3-Minute Blender Salsa

I love the taste of restaurant salsa and just don’t love most jarred salsas. But, I rarely want to take the time to do all the chopping to make salsa. Enter – 3-minute blender salsa. Literally timed myself and even with a few interruptions – THREE minutes to make this salsa that tastes like a restaurant. Now, that is a salsa I can get on board with and my family loves it! The tomatoes come from a can, but you would never guess it! You chose how spicy you want to make it. Our salsa go-to!
