Skillet Salsa

Sometimes you just have a craving and then an idea. I haven’t made a lot of different types of salsa. Mine usually involve adding the ingredients to a food processor. This time I decided to do something a little different and make a simple skillet salsa with the things that I had on hand. The flavors come together a bit differently when you sautés the ingredients compared to having raw ingredients, but I really liked it. Find the ingredients below after my method!


Thinly slice mini bell peppers and celery, and dice some red onion and garlic to prep your veggies. Add a bit of olive oil to your skillet. I used my tiniest one- a number 3! Sautés onions, celery, and bell peppers together until fragrant and soft. Then add garlic, salt, and pepper. Once you smell the garlic cooking add a can of Rotel tomatoes with diced green chilis. Let it simmer together for a few minutes for the flavors to come together and enjoy!

We ate ours with some Skillet Baja Fish tacos and tortilla chips and it was a hit!


  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • Half a stalk of celery, thinly sliced
  • 3 mini bell peppers, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 red onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 can Rotel tomatoes with diced green chilis

(Based on the size of my number 3 skillet, double or triple for a bigger skillet and get creative with more yummy flavors!)
