Tomato-Serrano Salsa

Tomato-Serrano Salsa

Why buy salsa when you could make your own at home with only six ingredients? This version gets a kick from spicy serrano chiles.


  • 1 lb. plum tomatoes, cored, finely chopped (about 2 cups)
  • 2 serrano chiles, seeded, minced
  • 1 medium white onion, minced (about 1 cup)
  • 3 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
  • Tortilla chips (for serving)

Recipe Preparation

  • Combine tomatoes and chiles in a medium bowl. Place minced onion in a strainer; rinse under cold water for 10 seconds. Drain well and add to bowl with tomatoes. Stir in cilantro and lime juice. Season with salt. Serve with tortilla chips. DO AHEAD Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and chill (salsa will get hotter the longer it sits).
