I made you this Easy Homemade Salsa Recipe. My husband has a love of spicy foods. Me….not so much. He is addicted to chips and salsa and wanted to create a homemade salsa recipe.
This salsa is great because you can whip it up in no time at all. Make it ahead the night before a big party to save yourself time.
This salsa is very easy to make. I think it might go very well with his homemade guacamole too! I guess he has to come up with a nacho recipe next. 🙂
We filmed a shot video for this salsa recipe. You can view it below. For more videos, please subscribe to my You Tube channel.

Jalapenos are no joke if you don't like spicy food so be careful. To lessen the heat, don't add as much jalapeno or use another chile with less heat. You can also remove the seeds. That is where most of the heat is. This is also better the next day, so refrigerate overnight and let the flavors really settle in.
