Homemade Salsa that’s so good…it’s addicting

Simple & Quick homemade salsa recipe. So delicious...it's addicting!

I loooove homemade salsa. I {might} even be addicted to chips & salsa.  The problem was I had the hardest time  finding a homemade recipe that I just had to have. I searched and searched. And then, I started trying recipes from a cookbook my mom gave me for Christmas several years ago. This cookbook is Ah-maZing! My mom told me my sister-in-law called it “The Cooking Bible”, I call it “THE cookbook”. Either way, we agree it’s a great compilation of recipes.  It seems as though the recipes in this book are pure gold. Thanks Mom, for such an inspired Christmas gift!

I usually make salsa by throwing ingredients in. Maybe that’s my problem. SO, I told myself, “You’ve got to stick to a recipe. Maybe then you’ll find one you like.” And you know what, it worked!!!  The original recipe is from “THE cookbook” and is by Sherry Van Leuven. Although, I did tweak it just a bit.

      I know Amy! It’s so yummy. :) Unfortunately, Joe calls it a “vile weed” so I have to use it sparingly.
