Sonya's Quick Fix Salsa

Sonya's Quick Fix Salsa


This recipe can be changed about with the seasonings and ingredients but here is what I fixed and it turned out awesome!  The pineapple is the secret!  You can get the hotter Rotel also and give it some heat.  Add some different seasonings, to your pleasure.  Play around and have fun!

1 10 oz. can mild Rotel diced tomatoes with green chili

1 8 oz. can Dole pineapple chunks

Seasonings to taste (a few shakes of each - perhaps a teaspoon or so): 

Onion powder

Garlic powder


Cilantro (fresh or dried)

*Penzey's Turkish seasoning blend 

*(or pick your own favorite seasoning blend. It's fun to go through the cabinets, take the tops off spices and "get a whiff" to see which smells like the right one!  Yep that is my method!)


Mix the Rotel tomatoes and the can of pineapple in a food processor along with seasonings and blend until it the pineapple and tomatoes have blended to a good "chunky" stage or finer (according to how you like your salsa).  It does NOT take long to do this - just a few seconds - so be watching or you'll have soup!  lol

Then once blended pour in a bowl and serve, or refrigerate.  This is most excellent if made a day in advance b/c the flavors settle and the pineapple sweetness becomes more apparent.

I had to post this in my blog b/c I don't want to forget what I used.  I'll repeat this one many times.
