Spice up quarantine with a simple salsa!

Ashley Reinke-Hawk – Nutrition and Lifestyle Host, Miss Arizona ’18:

Don’t let staying at home stop you from celebrating happy hour or your usual Taco-Tuesday. Use this simple recipe to blend a handful of ingredients that are in your pantry right now to enjoy and fresh and spicy salsa.


  • 1 (28-ounce) can whole peeled tomatoes with their juices
  • 1/2 small red or white onion coarsely chopped
  • 2 jalapeños seeds removed, and coarsely chopped (can substitute with a small can of diced chilis)
  • 2 tsp garlic
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro loosely packed
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • salt or to taste
  • One lime wedge

Directions: Put all ingredients (except the lime) into a blender and pulse until well combined. Pour into a bowl and squeeze lime onto. Serve with corn tortilla chips or on top of your favorite dish.
