Homemade salsa is not only easy to make, but it tastes so good!
If you are stuck at home and need a good dip for your chips, this recipe is foolproof. You do need a food processor for best results so you can quickly puree all the ingredients. This salsa is also great with tacos and quesadillas or can be used as a topping for grilled chicken.
This recipe uses canned tomatoes, so you can save your fresh ones. Once you can go shopping again, you can use fresh tomatoes.
