  • 2 cans (14.5 oz/ 411 g) whole tomatoes
  • 1 can (10 oz/283 gr) Rotel, which contains chopped tomatoes and green chilies
  • ¼ medium white onion
  • 2 whole garlic cloves
  • One big handful cilantro, whole
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Blend all the ingredients in a food processor or blender until you reach your desired consistency. I recommend blending it in batches since this makes a large amount of salsa.
  2. Cover it and store it in the refrigerator for at least one hour before serving.


If you can’t find Rotel, you can add 2-3 cans of tomatoes and 2-3 tablespoons of green chilies as substitutes.
