My 2nd boy (Cooper) loves this salsa! He is always my taste tester to make sure it is just right, and he always know if it needs more of something! So we call it Cooper’s Salsa, not to be confused with “Dad’s salsa” (the boys don’t love it much with all of the fresh jalapenos, cilantro and peppers). If I make any other salsa he will not eat it! He hates chunky salsa, he hates salsa that has too much cilantro or lime juice, he hates salsa that is bottled from the store! This salsa is the only salsa he will eat… and if you taste it you will know why! I have no idea where I got this recipe from. I have been making it for almost 20 years and it has never failed me!

This Easy Blender Salsa is super easy to make and you can throw it together in minutes! I always have the ingredients on hand (the chips are another story!). I make this salsa for my boys and their friends and it is devoured every single time! It is always a hit with kids or adults!

Ingredients for Cooper’s Easy Blender Salsa

There is nothing too fancy about this salsa. It is some canned tomatoes (one can of diced tomatoes, one of diced tomatoes with mild green chilis), chopped yellow onion, jalapenos from a jar, sugar, cumin, garlic salt and some sugar! Easy peasy! Even though there are not typical fresh salsa ingredients in this recipe it is still do dang delicious!

Just throw all of the ingredients into your blender or food processor and blend until smooth. I think the fact that this salsa is so smooth and nothing chunky is why kids love it (and the flavor)!
