Homemade salsa is just 15 minutes away with garden-fresh tomatoes.
Updated Jan 29, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1 lb plum (Roma) tomatoes (about 6 tomatoes)
  • 1 jalapeño chile, seeded
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled
  • 1/4 medium white onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon chicken tomato bouillon granules
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Steps

  • 1
    In blender, place all ingredients except oil. Cover; blend until smooth.
  • 2
    In 2-quart saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add tomato mixture; cook about 5 minutes or until hot. Serve warm or cold with tortilla chips, as desired. Cover and refrigerate any remaining salsa.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    To blend the ingredients, you could use a food processor instead of a blender.
  • tip 2
    This salsa, which is a little thinner than a typical bottled salsa, also makes a great enchilada sauce.
