Simply Salsa, Mango Salsa and Watermelon Salsa Recipes!

I love making homemade salsa for my family, especially during the summer and early fall months because I can usually pick up my veggies and fruits at the Farmer's market at an affordable price.

The following salsa recipes are from Tupperware!

Simply Salsa Recipe

1 medium onion
2 cloves garlic
Juice of 1/2 lime
1 (15 oz.) can diced tomatoes
1 Tbsp. Southwest Chipotle Seasoning Blend
Optional: 2-3 Tbsp. fresh cilantro

Peel and slice onion into 4 pieces; place in Quick Chef with blade, cover and turn handle until onion is roughly chopped. Peel and smash two garlic cloves and add to Quick Chef. Add remaining ingredients; cover and turn handle until desired consistency. Remove blade and place salsa in Snack Cups or a bowl for serving. Serve with chips or as a topping for tacos!

Mango Salsa Recipe

1/2 red onion, peeled and quartered
1 clove garlic, peeled and quartered
2 Mangoes, peeled, pitted and coarsely chopped, or 2 cups frozen chunks, thawed
1/2 or 1 Tbsp. (to taste) Southwest Chipotle Seasoning Blend
2 limes, juiced

Optional Ingredients: 1/4 cup cilantro leaves
1 jalapeno pepper, or additional to taste, seeded and quartered

Place onion and garlic in Quick Chef with blade attachment; cover and turn handle to coarsely chop. Add remaining ingredients; cover and chop until mango is desired consistency. Remove blade from Quick Chef. With Saucy Silicone Spatula remove salsa to Snack Cups or bowl. Chill until ready to serve. Serve with tortilla chips.

Watermelon Salsa Recipe

2 cups of watermelon, seeded and coarsely chopped
2 tbsp. onion, chopped
2 tbsp. water chestnuts, chopped
2 to 4 tbsp. green pepper, chopped
2 tbsp. vinegar
1/4 tsp. powdered garlic (or fresh minced garlic)

Combine all ingredients and mix well. You can use the Tupperware Quick Chef to chop ingredients if you have one. Refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours before serving. Makes 2 Cups.
