Hey new friends! I’m Jessica, half of the creative team behind Pretty Providence, and I am beyond thrilled to be guest posting here on All Things Thrifty! I am lucky enough to not only be a blog stalker of Brooke’s (she is so great, am I right?) but her real life friend as well! In case you haven’t heard of Pretty Providence (it’s still crazy weird to me that anyone might have heard of us at all…) we are a frugal lifestyle blog written by two lifetime bffs who believe that you can still look awesome, have a nice home, eat well and play a lot while living on a budget. It’s possible, I swear.Because we love sharing easy, frugal and still delicious recipes on the blog, I decided to share with “you all everybody” one of my best kept secrets.. homemade blender salsa!We all know that cooking at home is typically way more cost effective than eating out. The trouble is, I am a realist enough to know that with two babies in the house made from scratch isn’t going to happen all the time. So, I have totally perfected the art of making things “semi-homemade” like this amazing salsa.

I kid you not I get asked for this recipe all the time, and that is before people know how easy it is. It tastes so garden fresh and it takes literally 5 minutes and barely any cleanup. Can I get a “woot, woot?”

Without further ado…

Pretty Providence’s Homemade Blender Salsa:

1 can diced tomatoes (I use my home canned tomatoes, but store bought works great!)

1 can mild Rotel tomatoes

2 buttons crushed garlic

3-4 green onions

handful of torn cillantro

dash of salt

Add all ingredients to standing blender. Pulse until all ingredients are combined and about the same size. Keeps well in the refrigerator for 7-10 days.

That is it! Amazing right?

Aside from with tortilla chips, we also love this salsa with taco salads, breakfast burritos, nachos, or really any Mexican dish!

I hope your family loves it as much as mine does :). If you are curious about Pretty Providence and want to come see what we’re about, here are our social media links and a few of our most popular posts: FB, Pinterest, Twitter, Google +, Instagram.


Thank you to anyone who’s still reading, and thanks again Brooke for having me. You are all things amazing and wonderful!
