Raise your hand if you LOOOOVE salsa and chips 🙋 I have loved salsa since I was a little girl. I remember when my dad first introduced it to me and I fell in love with it. When I got diagnosed with Celiac Disease and a dairy allergy, I had to completely change my diet to be 100% gluten free and dairy free pretty much overnight. I remember mourning the loss of my favorite foods. Thankfully, salsa and chips are naturally gluten and dairy free so this was one snack I never had to give up/change!

I have spent YEARS perfecting this salsa recipe and I am so happy to finally be able to share it with the world and my fellow salsa-holics. This recipe is so easy you’ll be enjoying a nice bowl of fresh salsa in 5 minutes or less! You only need 5 ingredients; tomatoes, onion, cilantro, jalapeños and salt.
This salsa is perfect for dipping those chips, topping tacos, on eggs and pretty much anything you can imagine! Check out a couple of my Pro Tips below that make this recipe that much easier.
- Using a 28oz can of whole peeled tomatoes is super easy and my preferred method for when I am in a rush (also, who really enjoys peeling tomatoes anyway?)
- This recipe can be made in either a food processor or a blender. If you have a small food processor, you may want to opt for a blender. This is my favorite food processor and my favorite blender to make this salsa (and everything else) in!
5x5 Salsa - 5 Ingredients, 5 Minutes
Enjoy the taste of fresh salsa in just 5 minutes or less!
- 12 Roma Tomatoes peeled - you can also use a 28 oz can of whole peeled tomatoes, drained
- 1/2 White Onion
- 2 Jalapeños
- 1 handful Cilantro
- 2 tsp salt if you would like more salt then feel free to add one more tsp
Peel tomatoes and set aside (skip this step if you are using a 28oz can of whole peeled tomatoes)
Slice onion in half
De-stem and remove the seeds from the jalapeños (if you want hot salsa, do not remove the seeds)
In a food processor or blender combine tomatoes, onion, jalapeños, a handful of cilantro and salt by pulsing 8-10 times. You want to make sure you pulse otherwise your salsa may become more soupy.
Enjoy with some chips or topped on just about anything!
