This Restaurant-Style Fire Roasted Tomato Salsa requires no fire just your instapot. It takes only 10 minutes and you can adjust the heat level to your liking.
Happy Cinco de Mayo! Who is ready to drink margaritas and eat chips and salsa? I know I am. In honor of the day I have THE BEST salsa recipe to share with you. Since I started making this recipe about four months ago I haven’t purchased a canned jar of salsa. It’s that good and that easy.
With only 7 ingredients, restaurant quality salsa is ready for your chips in only 15 minutes. I use prepared fire roasted tomatoes, jalapeño and green chilies and add fresh onion, garlic, lime and cilantro to give the salsa a garden fresh flavor.
When you buy your jalapeños I like to buy the variety that has carrots and jalapeños. The carrots are spicy but add a hint of sweetness. I also like the specks of orange the color adds to the salsa. In reality you can add what ever you want to this salsa. If you like green peppers…add them, more garlic…go for it.
I highly recommend eating this salsa warm directly from the instapot. It also stores well in an airtight container for up to two weeks in your refrigerator.
