If you’ve got a craving for a freshly made house salsa, Restaurant Style Salsa will fit the bill and you can make it in less than 10 minutes!
So, here’s a fun fact – I can’t live without Mexican food. My whole family loves it, going for tacos is often a budget friendly way to eat out and we can never get enough chips and salsa. I’ve found very few jarred salsas that I really love, I prefer the fresh flavor of restaurant style salsa and you won’t believe how easy is it to make a batch at home. This recipe makes about 4 cups of salsa, which is just right for a gathering or your next taco night. If you have any leftover, it keeps in the fridge for several days.
All you need are a few pantry staples, a food processor or blender and a few minutes. Make sure you have plenty of chips on hand…that is a fear of mine – running out of tortillas chips when we’re ready to dive into a bowl of salsa or guacamole. Running out would be a certain kind of travesty 😉
