A staple in any Mexican household. Alone or on top of quesadillas, this salsa is delicious for almost any meal.
Confession: I will occasionally buy a jar of Mexican red salsa. If you know my mother, please do not tell her my dirty little secret. It's a time-saving, busy mom's thing. But most of the time, I make my own. Making salsa from scratch reminds me of my childhood. The blender goes. Knowing to avoid the kitchen or else you should help cook … After all, we were children. It was very important to play and watch TV. 🙂
Once, I showed up to a Super Bowl party with my homemade Mexican red salsa and it was the party hit. Everyone wanted my recipe. Take it to a potluck and you'll see what I mean. More people seem to like the red salsa as opposed to the green salsa. Or is it just me? Personally, I don't care if it's green or red as long as it's warm and spicy. I know you didn't know that spicy food is good for you. It is! Prevents heart disease, helps you lose weight and chilli fight cancer. Yay. Yay. And YAY!
This is a very basic recipe. From here you can do all kinds of things. Add chipotle to extra spice, mix it with cream cheese and make a dip, combine it with ground beef for a Mexican fiesta evening. Versatility is the name of the game. Once you try to make your own salsa, you will never return to the container … unless in an emergency like you have an insane craving for chips and salsa. From one seasoned foodie to another, I know … the fight is real!
