How To Make Salsa?

  1. To make salsa, place diced tomatoes with juice in a food processor with chopped onion, garlic, lime, cilantro, cumin, salt, and pepper.
  2. Pulse food processor until you have the consistency you prefer. I love to leave mine a little chunky.

Can You Freeze Salsa?

Did you know that you can freeze salsa? Yes, salsa can be frozen to keep it longer, for up to 6 months. To freeze your salsa, cook it on the stove top in a saucepan to thicken. Cool salsa completely.

Place your cooked salsa in freezer containers leaving space for expansion. I prefer to use smaller containers so that all the salsa gets eaten up and I don't waste salsa.

When you are ready to serve your salsa, thaw salsa and drain the excess liquid that is formed.
