Cilantro Mushroom Salsa {Salsa de Champiñones}

A fantastic side to any Mexican meal! Serve with chips or top your tacos with it!

We’ve been devouring some seriously delicious Mexican food lately and this salsa has become a new staple on taco/fajita/burrito nights! It’s super easy to throw together and is full of fresh, powerful flavor.

The main players here are baby bella mushrooms, red onion, cilantro, and jalapeño. 99% of your time making this salsa will be finely chopping all these yummies. And I won’t lie, that part is pretty tedious even though it only takes about 10-15 minutes. So, the special trick to make this easier is toss everything in a food processor and pulse until chopped. This will work great, but definitely be careful not to over-do it – otherwise you’ll wind up with sauce instead of salsa (but maybe that’s how you roll – you do you!)

This is also a customize to your fav flavor type of recipe. Throw in lots of cilantro if you’re a cilantro lover like me. Omit the jalapeño if that’s a little to spicy for you. More lime, more salt, more red onion – all options!

(and maybe even toss in some other favorite veggies to this – bell pepper would be tasty in this too!)

Happy Tuesday, friends.

  1. Combine all ingredients.
  2. If time allows, allow to marinate in the fridge for 1 hour. Keeps covered in the fridge for up to 3-4 days.
Make Ahead Tip: You can make this a day or two in advance (and I think it actually tastes better after a day marinating)
