SUPER EASY SALSA RECIPE
Chips and salsa is everyone’s go-to party snack, especially when it’s made healthy and fresh!

This gluten free recipe is a Blender Babes favorite and we love that it’s so easy to make in a Blendtec or Vitamix high powered blender!

Since these blenders are also food processors, you can easily chop up the ingredients to have a chunky salsa or keep blending for a smooth salsa – we prefer it chunky!

Spice up your appetizer menu with the delicious tastes of fresh garlic, cilantro and lime, perfect additions to this low calorie quick to make salsa.

If you want to add a spicy fat-burning kick, we like to add a little bit of jalapeño. 🙂 Just blend up and serve with your favorite tortilla chips and you have yourself a quick and healthy salsa for guests or enjoy alongside a yummy margarita!

HEALTH BENEFITS & FUN FACTS
Cilantro
 is featured in dishes cooked everywhere from Spain to Mexico, the Middle East to South America.

The fresh leafs are often sprinkled over the tops of dishes, and the root is used in Thailand to give that distinctly powerful flavor to local dishes.

Best Meal Planning App

You may already know that cilantro is one of the main ingredients in the salsa at your favorite Mexican restaurant.

This herb isn’t just a commonly-used leaf and seed ingredient found in many tasty and exotic recipes, it’s also a powerful natural cleansing agent.

The herb is a good source of minerals like potassium, calcium, manganese, iron, and magnesium.

Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that helps control heart rate and blood pressure. Iron is essential for red blood cell production.

It is also rich in many vital vitamins including folic-acid, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin-A, beta carotene, vitamin-C that are essential for optimum health.
