This Homemade Salsa is simple to make and is done in 5 minutes or less. It’s a favorite in my family and a must try recipe.
My family loves snacking. Growing up we always loved making appetizers and usually ate more of them then the actual meal. This New Years eve we decided to just do appetizers. We snacked all night while we played games and watched movies. One snack that is always on the table with my family around is Homemade Salsa. Usually, it’s my little sister’s job to make it, she is the best at making it. She never measures just tosses it together until it taste good. This week I finally decided to measure it all out and get it to post for you!
This recipe is pretty basic salsa recipe and very mild. It’s perfect if you are serving it for family taco night. My kids love this stuff! You can, of course, add more spice to taste.
Making Homemade Salsa:
Usually, when I make homemade salsa I don’t even measure. Just add a little bit of this and that until it’s the right taste. I finally made it again and measured everything out to share with you but the making your own salsa feel free to add more or less of what you like. For this recipe we kept is pretty mild (for the kids) and I used diced green chilis. If you like more spice you can add more or you can use jalapeños in their place.
Keep some chips handy when making the salsa so you can taste it as you mix it up. Once everything is diced and mixed then you can serve and enjoy! It’s one of our favorite things to make and I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
Here are a few recipes to serve with your homemade salsa!
Slow Cooker Steak Fajitas: I love slow cooker recipes and this one is so simple. 5 simple ingredients and a few hours in the slow cooker then dinner is ready.
Tater Tot Taco Casserole: Everyone loves a good casserole! This one is loaded with flavor and topped with tater tots.
Taco Braid: This recipe is so easy to make and one of my favorites. The taco meat and salsa are braided in a pizza crust then baked and topped with your favorite taco toppings.
