I buy min but I'd be willing to be your homemade tastes a heck of a lot better! Nothing beats fresh salsa!!

My husband likes to buy his. I would love to try to make it but he is picky about his salsa. Lol

If I buy, I read the ingredients.  If there is tomato paste or sauce in there, it's a no-go.  That's why I can't stand Pace and some of those others that are thick and gooey.  I do like On The Border, and I've found some other brands that taste fresh.  The deli section has fresh-made stuff, but it's expensive.  I have a favorite Mexican restaurant where I get some to go (and, I swear, I'm actually SIPPING the stuff from the cup on the way home! lol).  I have some "restaurant-quality" recipes I haven't tried yet, so thanks for reminding me.  Here's one:

Easy Restaurant Style Salsa

 

2 -14 ounce cans diced tomatoes

2 cans diced tomatoes with green chilies (Rotel type and you can adjust the spice by using a spicer or milder version of Rotel)

½ onion, chopped

½ teaspoon sugar

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon cumin

¼ cup cilantro ( basically a few sprigs or leave it out if you do not have any)

2 tablespoons lime juice

Combine together in a food processor. Pulse a few times until you reach desired consistency. Depending on your food processor you may need to do this in a few batches. Serve with chips or other Mexican food and enjoy!
