Introducing my newest obsession: my skinny zero-point salsa. Better and healthier than your average Mexican restaurant with even better taste! I’m not lying when I say this stuff packs a punch! It’s great paired with chips or veggies, but watch out, you may become addicted as well!!
Make it spicer with more jalapeño! Or more onion-y with more onion! Totally up to you what you want to do with this dip, this is just what I like and a great base to start with.
Makes about 2 cups of sauce, ⅛ cup per serving.... but hey, its zero-points, enjoy as much as you want!!
I served mine with some thin and crispy Tostitos.
Skinny Zero-Point Salsa
healthy and better than your local mexican takeout
- 1 can diced tomatoes 14.5 oz
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon onion powder
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- ¼ cup cilantro packed
- ⅛ cup red onion diced
- 1 teaspoon jalapeño diced
- If you do not like your salsa too 'liquid-y' start by draining your tomatoes; however, I always just leave it as is.
- Add diced tomatoes, seasonings, and lime juice to a blender. Blend until your desired consistency. You will be blending again so do not over blend.
- Add cilantro and blend until just combined.
- Add diced onion (and diced jalapeño, if desired) and stir together.

[…] How can we have queso chicken and rice without queso? Now what is salsa con queso you ask? Salsa con queso is in the grocery store and is near the tortilla chips in my local Publix. It is a jarred sauce/dip that consists of salsa and queso, hence, salsa con queso. I loving having salsa con queso in my house as it is pretty low calorie for what it is, cheese. There are a variety of different brands but I use the generic one, it is cheaper! However, you can also make your own using Velveeta, or a similar cheese, and salsa. Purchase a pre-made salsa or make my homemade skinny salsa recipe. […]
