  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin

Making the Salsa

Fresh Ingredients:

  • 5 ripe tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1-2 jalapeños, seeds removed and finely chopped (adjust based on desired heat)
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • “Amigos Spicy Salsa Packet” mix


  1. Prep the Fresh Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the chopped tomatoes, red onion, jalapeños, and cilantro. Stir well to combine.
  2. Add the “Amigos Spicy Salsa Packet”: Sprinkle your homemade spicy salsa mix over the fresh ingredients. Toss everything together until the vegetables are evenly coated with the spices.
  3. Add Lime Juice: Squeeze the lime juice over the salsa and mix well. The lime juice not only adds a zesty flavor but also helps to meld the flavors together.
  4. Chill and Serve: For the best flavor, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving. This resting time allows the flavors to blend beautifully.
  5. Enjoy: Serve your homemade spicy salsa with tortilla chips, or use it to enhance your favorite Mexican dishes.


  • Tomato Tips: For a thicker salsa, you can remove the seeds and juice from the tomatoes before chopping.
  • Flavor Variations: Feel free to adjust the “Amigos Spicy Salsa Packet” spices according to your taste preferences. Adding a pinch of sugar can balance the acidity from the tomatoes and lime.

By creating your own “Amigos Spicy Salsa Packet,” you have the convenience of a ready-made spice mix combined with the fresh, vibrant flavors of homemade salsa. It’s a fun, flavorful way to add a spicy kick to any meal or gathering.
