The Best Salsa in the World. Yes, that is a high title to live up to but I seriously believe that this Salsa stands. Oh man, it is delicious! Delicious and addicting. We couldn’t stop eating it, it is that good.
I modeled this salsa after one of my favorite salsas: Chevy’s Salsa! I used to go to Chevy’s just for their salsa and chips. I think the waiters would hate me. The key to this recipe isn’t some fake liquid smoke, it is actually grilling the tomatoes and peppers on a charcoal grill…My mouth is literally watering typing this up.
Delicious Rating: A charcoal grill is the only option for this recipe. Gas will not give it the real smoky taste and liquid smoke is so out of the question. After the grilling it is a super easy recipe, blend it all up and serve! It tastes better (if that is possible) the next day after all the flavors have come together and melded perfectly. I am going to the store right now to buy some more ingredients!
The Best Salsa in the World
- 2 lbs fresh tomatoes
- 1 large onion chopped
- 4 jalapeno peppers
- ¼ cup fresh cilantro chopped
- 1 tbsp black pepper
- 3 tsp salt
- 2 tsp garlic minced
- On a hot charcoal grill, grill tomatoes and jalapeno peppers until charred and they began splitting.
Whenever I start up the charcoal grill now, maybe just for hot dogs or a tri-tip, I always make sure just to throw on some jalapenos and tomatoes for some salsa.
- Place in a large bowl and allow to cool.
- Continue to drain off excess liquid that will accumulate in the bowl.
- Place tomatoes, onion, jalapenos, cilantro, black pepper, salt, and garlic into the blender.
- Blend for 20 seconds or until your desired consistency.
Don’t blend and walk away, pulse to your desired consistency. Maybe you like a thick and chunky salsa, maybe super thin, or just in the middle. Pulsing will let you choose.
- Pour into bowl and chill or serve immediately with chips.
- Store in a covered dish for up to 1 week in the fridge.

Salsa is a delicious, nutritious condiment that can be enjoyed by people of all cultures. It’s easy to make, versatile, and perfect for adding flavor and nutrition to your meals. In this section, we’ll outline the ingredients and steps needed to create a delicious Mexican salsa.
- First, you will need some fresh tomatoes, onions, garlic, cilantro (coriander), and jalapeño peppers. If you can’t find these specific ingredients in your area, you can use a similar assortment of flavors for the salsa. Once you have all of the ingredients gathered together, it’s time to start cooking!
- To begin cooking the salsa, heat up a skillet over medium heat and add in the onions and garlic. Cook until the onions are translucent before adding in the tomatoes and jalapeño peppers. Let the mixture cook until it comes to a boil before removing it from heat and letting it cool slightly.
- Once everything is cooked through (the tomatoes should be soft), add in the cilantro (coriander) and jalapeño peppers and mix everything together well. Season with salt as desired before serving hot with tortilla chips or as part of a salad dressing on your next meal!
