  • ½ cup yellow onion chopped
  • ¼ cup red bell pepper chopped
  • ¼ cup green bell pepper chopped
  • 3 jalapeño peppers chopped
  • 2 tbsp vegetable broth (low sodium, oil-free)
  • 1 tbsp tamari (low sodium)
  • 1 cup canned fire roasted crushed tomatoes
  • 4 tsp lime juice approx. 1 lime
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp ground cumin
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper


  • Sauté the onion, red bell pepper, green bell pepper, jalapeño pepper with the vegetable broth and tamari. Simmer in a pan on the stove for approximately 7-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • When the onion and peppers are ready, add all ingredients to a food processor or blender and blend until your desired consistency is reached.*


*If you prefer a chunkier salsa, you can simply stir all ingredients together instead of blending. Just ensure that you chop the onion and peppers to your desired size before cooking, if you choose not to use a food processor or blender.
