You guys, the Cleveland Browns won a game last week. Like, not just tied the game, but actually won a game. You would swear the people of Cleveland were celebrating a championship. Being a Cleveland sports fan is not easy!

I’m going to celebrate by sharing this ridiculously easy game day snack, homemade salsa! This isn’t just any salsa though, it is made with fresh tomatoes so none of the canned stuff here!

This salsa comes together pretty easily in your blender in just 5 minutes after you toss everything in! One thing to note is that if your blender is not the best in terms of quality and if it struggles to chop things up nice and fine, you could also use a food processor to make this.

I like to use plum tomatoes for this salsa. They have more “meat” to them and less watery stuff so they work better for blending. Using fresh tomatoes makes the salsa a bit lighter in color compared to canned tomatoes, but it will darken if you leave it in the fridge for a bit.

If you like some heat, feel free to add up to a whole jalapeno pepper, but if not, you can leave it out or use very little!

This fresh tomato salsa is obviously perfect with chips, but it’s also great to have on hand for tacos, burrito bowls, or even scrambled eggs!
