Midweek Mealtime - Best Salsa EVER

Wednesday, August 02, 2017

21 Day Fix Shift ShopToday's midweek mealtime is actually broken into 2 parts: this one and these nachos. The reason for that is the salsa in this recipe is so good that it 100% deserves its own post. I mean, seriously, this salsa is incredible! And it goes with and on everything: chips, eggs, tacos...and it makes the best taco or nacho meat.

I first had a variation of this salsa when visiting my sister-in-law and her family. Her husband made salsa as a snack, and I proceeded to beg him for his recipe. I begged all weekend long. He finally caved and gave me his base "procedure," if you will. I've made it a few times trying to nail down the exact proportions, and I am happy to say I've got it. And I think it's safe to say that if you come to my house, there will be some in the fridge!

Do yourself a favor and make this. Now.


  • 1 small red onion
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro, stems cut off
  • 3 cans diced tomatoes with green chiles
  • 2 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 4 Tbsp lime juice (or juice from 1 large lime)
  • 1/2 Tbsp cumin
  • 1 Tbsp honey


  1. In a food processor, chop onion and cilantro until finely minced.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and chop until desired consistency.  I like mine to have some chunks, but very small ones.  ha!
If you count containers on any of Beachbody's plans, this is simply 1 green.

If you make this, let me know how you like it!
