All my life I’ve bought salsa at the grocery store. I don’t know why, I just did. Then one day I decided to go ahead and try making this on my own. We love Mexican food and I shouldn’t have to spend $3-$5 for salsa every time I cook it and I shouldn’t have to go to the store when I need it. I should be able to just make it on my own.
It didn’t take long to discover that homemade salsa is 100% better than anything you can get out of a jar in a store. It also turns out that I can make it in less time than it takes me to go to the store, walk to the right aisle, grab what I want and then get side-lined buying things I didn’t want or need and then going home. Ultimately it costs much less for me to make it than it does if I run to the store to buy it.
I can also control the heat, the tang or sweetness in my kitchen. It may cost me $3 to make it, but it’s better than what I get at the store. It makes four times as much as I buy for the same cost.
We love salsa on chips, but this can be added to whatever Mexican food I’m making. It can be added to sour cream to bring it to another level. The other great thing about salsa is that it’s got very low calories. You can add it to anything you want for extra taste and no guilt. Examples could be hamburgers, steak, chicken, potato. Instead of using dressing for a taco salad, use this salsa. How about salsa on a sweet potato? You will not be disappointed in the taste or how simple it is to make.
