As soon as the Spring weather decides to show up around here, there is nothing I crave more than sitting on the patio with a margarita in one hand and some chips and salsa in the other hand. Making homemade salsa that is as good or even better than a Mexican Restaurant salsa is so easy to do. Before I figured it out, I was too intimidated to make it on my own. Now, I refuse to buy store bought salsa!
I am not a big tomato fan but I love salsa. So I use canned tomatoes for my salsa, crushed so there are no big chunks. This batch is made with one large can. Then I cut up one onion, one bunch of cilantro and one jalapeno pepper-more or less depending on how hot you like it. Then I add a little garlic salt and regular salt to taste. I like salt so I probably add more than I should! And the only way to really get the yummiest salsa ever, is to get the best chips ever. I can only eat Juanita's tortilla chips with homemade salsa. They are so salty and crunchy, you have to try them if you haven't!
