Copycat Chili's Salsa

Hi there! I hope everyone is enjoying their week, though it seems to be flying by! Can you believe that Friday is the first day of Autumn?! WooHoo, I'm so excited! I just hope the weather in here in Texas starts reflecting that soon, the high today is 90..yuck :( Anyway, my husband and I love to go to Chili's and we almost always order their bottomless chips & salsa when we go. Well now if we are craving their salsa we don't even have to leave the house! This recipe is so deliciously addicting and tastes just like Chili's salsa. It's so fresh tasting and only tastes better everyday it sits. We buy nice thin restaurant style tortilla chips and it's like we're right at Chili's! This is so ridiculously easy, try it will love it!

1 10 Ounce Can Tomatoes and Green Chilies (Rotel)
1 14.5 Ounce Can Whole Tomatoes
1/4 Cup Onion, diced
1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Cumin
1/4 Teaspoon Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Cilantro, chopped (I used Flat Leaf Italian Parsley because I'm not big on Cilantro)

In a blender, pulse the chopped onion for just a second so it's really fine. Add both of the cans of tomatoes, juices and all, the garlic salt, sugar, cumin and cilantro (or parsley). Pulse everything for a good 10 seconds until there are no large chunks of tomatoes. Pour into an airtight container and let rest in the fridge for at least 24 hours. The longer it sits, the more the flavors will develop and the better it will be.

  1. Looks wonderful! I love salsa, but I'm not big on chunky this is right up my alley! I'll have to give it a try sometime soon!


  2. Perfect husband would be all over it in a flash.

  3. Made this tonight- tastes great! I'm not a fan of any chunks in my salsa so this is perfect!


I love hearing from you all!
