10 Step Salsa: Mama Parker’s Salsa Recipe

Now that Spring is arriving I have definitely been craving something fresh so today I decided to make my mom’s homemade salsa. It is a super simple recipe to follow and the results are delicious. I have made it many times before but today I felt like it was super tasty because the tomatoes I used were perfectly ripe and the cilantro was fresh! I will try my best to lay out the steps in the easiest way for you to follow!


Here is a list of everything you will need:

  • 4 small-medium sized tomatoes
  • 1 medium sized red onion
  • 1 large clove of garlic (or 2 small ones)
  • 1/2 a lime
  • About 1 handful of cilantro
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Tortilla chips of your choice


Steps for preparing the salsa:

  1. As always, make sure you wash the tomatoes beforehand 🙂
  2. Chop the 4 tomatoes into big chunks
  3. Dice up 2 of the tomatoes in a blender that has a setting to dice veggies, I personally use a magic bullet (this gives the salsa the liquid texture so you can skip this step if you want your salsa to be more chunky)
  4. Slice up the leftover 2 tomatoes by hand into diced up chunks (I like half of my tomatoes to be the liquid texture and the other half to be chunky so I still get those little tomato pieces in the final product)
  5. Dice up the onion into small pieces
  6. Dice up one large clove of garlic (or two small ones)
  7. Chop about a handful of fresh cilantro (I usually just “eyeball” how much cilantro I use so if a handful seems like to much to you, it probably is. Just adjust this step to the quantity you prefer)
  8. Add just a pinch of salt and pepper
  9. Squeeze the half-lime over the ingredients and mix well
  10. Finally, dip your tortilla chips of choice in your salsa and enjoy!!! 🙂


I hope you will enjoy this quick and easy recipe as much as I do! It is super tasty (especially if you love onions and garlic as much as I do lol…) + cheap + easy.
