Simple Homemade Tomato Salsa Packed Full of Fresh Flavors
You know when you go to a Mexican restaurant, and the first thing that happens is they bring chips and salsa? That’s my favorite – I LOVE chips and salsa. It gives you the perfect opportunity to get full before your food comes too. Which is fine because I like leftover Mexican food.
The best part about the chips and salsa is the salsa. It is so disappointing when you do that first dip and realize the salsa isn’t very good. OR, you take that first dip and are in heaven. How do they get it to taste so good you ask yourself?
Well I decided I needed to find out. It can’t be that hard right? Well, I was wrong. It took a ton of trial and error to get the perfect blend of spices and flavor.
This simple homemade tomato salsa is SO EASY to make. Now that you have all the ingredients to meld those perfect flavors (your welcome) you can have those wonderful chips and salsa any time!
Combine all ingredients together in a blender and blend until smooth.
Add additional salt to taste if required. If you like extra spicy salsa, add an extra jalapeno. Now, how many recipes are that easy? Add ingredients, blend and voila. You’ve got the best homemade tomato salsa.
