Red Salsa

Skip the store-bought and pre-made salsa, and make your own homemade version. This recipe calls for canned tomatoes, which offer an added nutrition bonus! When tomatoes are heated during processing or canning, the powerful antioxidant, lycopene, becomes more bioavailable to our bodies, offering potentially more cancer protection and anti-inflammatory benefits.


  • 1/2 Onion, raw – yellow, cut into 2 quarters
  • 3 Garlic, clove
  • 1/2 cup Cilantro – packed, no stems
  • 2 Anaheim Pepper – quartered
  • 1/4 cup Chile de Arbol, dried – toasted
  • 2 tbsp Lime Juice – or one lime, juiced
  • 1 tsp Sea Salt
  • 2 cup Tomatoes, canned – diced
  • 1 tsp Sugar



Add all ingredients in order listed, except diced tomatoes, into the pitcher. Pulse 3 times until ingredients are minced down.


Add diced tomatoes. Pulse 3 times until all ingredients are broken down and are incorporated into a salsa consistency.
