Homemade Salsa

Homemade Salsa is a staple in our house. A friend shared this recipe with us nearly 10 years ago, we haven’t bought salsa since. It’s that good!

Besides the classic ‘chips and salsa,’ we love this salsa drizzled on our Blackened Rockfish Tacos.

Stop buying salsa. Make it from scratch & you’ll never turn back.
