Blender Salsa

This might be the easiest salsa you’ll ever make: toss some piquant ingredients in a blender, give them a blitz, and you’re basically done. All it needs is a basket full of warm salty tortilla chips. Even better, because it doesn’t require the season’s sweetest juiciest tomatoes, you can make this recipe any time of year. Don’t turn your nose up at canned tomatoes. Because they’re picked and canned during their peak season, they’re a great bet in winter, spring, or fall, or anytime you get a chips-n-salsa craving.
