Introduction: Homemade Salsa From Scratch

About: Hey y'all! My name is Lydia and I want to share my passion for cooking/baking with everyone!

Does anyone ever just crave chips and salsa? I know I do and going to a Mexican restaurant isn't something I can do whenever I want. So why not make it at home. Homemade salsa is so good! Did I mention it's also easy and comes together so fast! The flavors are so amazing in this salsa! I always try to tell everyone to make every recipe their own by add more or less of the ingredients (not in baking). If you want to know how to make your own salsa, follow the step by step instructable below or watch the video tutorial here:
