Superior Grill Restaurant Salsa Recipe

Superior Grill is my favorite local Tex-Mex restaurant. I could eat there every day! I love their chicken fajitas and their salsa and queso are the best in town. Imagine my excitement when a Plain Chicken reader sent me the recipe for their salsa! The recipe was printed in the local newspaper years ago and she had saved it. I immediately went to the store to get the ingredients

Homemade Salsa Like Mexican Restaurants

This Homemade Salsa is super easy to make. Place some onion, cilantro, and pickled jalapeños in the bowl of a food processor. Process until finely chopped. Add canned tomatoes, garlic powder, cumin, and salt. Pulse until the salsa reaches the desired consistency. That is it! SO easy!

If you aren’t a fan of cilantro, you can definitely leave it out. If you want a spicier salsa, feel free to add more pickled jalapeños. I suggest tasting the salsa first before adding more jalapeños. 

I didn’t drain the canned tomatoes. If you want a thicker salsa, feel free to drain all or some of the canned tomato liquid before adding to the food processor.

How Long with Homemade Salsa Keep in the Refrigerator?

Superior Grill Homemade Salsa will keep 5 to 7 days in the refrigerator. This recipe makes a TON of salsa. If you don’t need this much, feel free to half the recipe. You need to make this ASAP! I promise you will never buy jarred salsa again! This is really the best!

We use this salsa on just about everything. Obviously, we eat it with chips, but it is also great on salads, sandwich wraps, in casseroles, on top of tacos and burritos, added to some black beans,  mixed with some ranch dip. 

Here are some of our favorite recipes from the blog that go great with this homemade salsa:

  1. I just read your recipe for Superior Grill Salsa where you mentioned you have the recipe for their taco soup. I would appreciate if you would share the recipe since that is one of my favorite Mexican dishes. Thanks for all your wonderful recipes, it sure makes cooing more interesting.

  2. Thank you SO much for posting this! We moved away from Louisiana years ago and always go to Superior when we visit. This salsa tastes exactly like theirs. It’s amazing!

  3. Superior Grill is my favorite Mexican restaurant!! I hate they have made their chips differently now! I loved the thin, crispy chips they had. Thanks so much for the recipe!

  4. Are we talking about Superior in Shreveport Louisiana?? 😃😃😃. If so…do you happen to have their guacamole recipe??

  5. OMG!! I love Superior!! So excited to find this. Now if we could just get their Tortilla Soup & the Margaritas. 😁

  6. Why the cans of whole tomatoes and then diced tomatoes if your just going to put it all in a food processor?

    1. Nick Miller, I think the difference is diced tomatoes in a can are harder to break down, so when you put them in the food processor they maintain some shape unless blended to death. I say this because I made this salsa and processed just enough to mix it up and there were still some small pieces of tomato left in the salsa and my family liked it that way verses the very thin salsas. Hope that helps you a little.
