Salsa is probably my most favorite condiment. There’s so much you can do with it. You can use it as a dip with fresh tortilla chips, a sauce for just about any kind of meat or veggie, a topping for tacos, burritos, and more! You can even use it in homemade breakfast burrito. But I’m not too crazy about the bottled salsa found in grocery stores, that’s why I make my own homemade salsa.
It’s pretty simple to make, you can make it as hot or mild as you like. I like mine super hot! Homemade Salsa is made with fresh ingredients, but since it has no preservatives it doesn’t keep long, just a day or two at most. But that’s not a problem at our house. We love my homemade salsa so much that there’s almost never any leftovers! I love it just rolled in a fresh tortilla!
