This fresh salsa is so simple to make and you hardly need anytime at all to make this Mexican favorite right in your own home.
Being from Texas we get our fair share of Mexican food. It’s basically its own food group here. Can’t even drive a block without passing another Tex-Mex restaurant.
Whether it’s a chain restaurant or a mom and pop shop, my husband and I are always looking for a new Mexican food place to try out. We just want one restaurant that we both agree on that it’s good Mexican food.
Usually the first determining factor is their salsa. They must have really good salsa. I prefer a spicier salsa, my husband not so much. He’s a fire roasted hot salsa guy. Me on the other hand I like cold and full of flavor.
I’ve always wanted to come up with my own salsa recipe. Just so I could control the amount of spice and how chunky or not the salsa is. And that’s where this one came about.
Salsa is so easy to make too. You basically throw all the ingredients in a food processor and blend together and you are done. It really can’t get any easier than that unless you just bought a jar of salsa at the grocery store.
Making this salsa really made me want to learn about canning so I could make huge batches and keep them all year long. Or even give some away as gifts and people can choose when they want to enjoy it.
I personally think this salsa is a fresher more pico taste. If you want a more restaurant style salsa I would use canned tomatoes instead of fresh ones.
Now just grab you a bag of tortilla chips and enjoy your salsa.
