Easy Salsa Recipe – Best Salsa Recipe – Chevys Salsa Recipe

The Best Salsa in the World. Yes, that is a high title to live up to but I seriously believe that this Salsa stands. Oh man, it is delicious! Delicious and addicting. We couldn’t stop eating it, it is that good.

I modeled this salsa after one of my favorite salsas: Chevy’s Salsa! I used to go to Chevy’s just for their salsa and chips. I think the waiters would hate me. The key to this recipe isn’t some fake liquid smoke, it is actually grilling the tomatoes and peppers on a charcoal grill…My mouth is literally watering typing this up.

Delicious Rating: A charcoal grill is the only option for this recipe. Gas will not give it the real smoky taste and liquid smoke is so out of the question. After the grilling it is a super easy recipe, blend it all up and serve! It tastes better (if that is possible) the next day after all the flavors have come together and melded perfectly. I am going to the store right now to buy some more ingredients!


The Best Salsa in the World


Recipe type: Appetizer

Prep time: 

Cook time: 

Total time: 

Yields: 3 Cups

  • 2 lbs fresh tomatoes
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 4 jalapeno peppers
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tbsp black pepper
  • 3 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp garlic, minced
  1. On a hot charcoal grill, grill tomatoes and jalapeno peppers until charred and they began splitting.
  2. Place in a large bowl and allow to cool.
  3. Continue to drain off excess liquid that will accumulate in the bowl.
  4. Remove core ends of tomatoes and the stems of the jalapenos.
  5. Place tomatoes, onion, jalapenos, cilantro, black pepper, salt, and garlic into the blender.
  6. Blend for 20 seconds or until your desired consistency.
  7. Pour into bowl and chill or serve immediately with chips.

Whenever I start up the charcoal grill now, maybe just for hot dogs or a tri-tip, I always make sure just to throw on some jalapenos and tomatoes for some salsa.

Don’t blend and walk away, pulse to your desired consistency. Maybe you like a thick and chunky salsa, maybe super thin, or just in the middle. Pulsing will let you choose.
