Alright people, here it is: my neighborhood's famous salsa. If you could only have one recipe for salsa in the world, this would be it. All of the ingredients in this recipe come together to create a delicious and addicting combination that will leave you wanting more and more!
Many years ago (okay only like two and a half) I was still in high school and going to school dances. My friends would often get together before or after the dance and have a party at someone's house, and I was always assigned to bring the salsa. I'm still not sure how I got that role... I think I brought salsa to one of our parties and then BOOM everyone wanted it every time. Yes, that's how good this salsa is! Just imagine all of my friends gathered around a big bowl of salsa and tons of chips for hours. Yep that's pretty much how it went.
So welcome to the world of delicious salsa where tomatoes and cilantro become your diet and where you are never judged on how much you eat because "it's healthy", right?
