The best part of eating out at a Mexican restaurant is enjoying the chips and salsa before your meal arrives. What you buy in the store never seems to measure up to restaurant quality. I wanted to share my favorite salsa recipe so you can enjoy fresh-made salsa at home. You can jar it and give as gifts or enjoy throughout the year.
