That’s right, this is the best homemade hot salsa.
Don’t believe me? Try this recipe for yourself and let me know.
I have a running joke with my friends that I know authentic Mexican food because…
- I grew up (spent one year as a toddler) on the Mexican border (Eagle Pass, Texas)
- Spent most of my childhood in San Antonio, Texas (strong Hispanic influence)
- Spent one summer in Cuernavaca, Mexico as an exchange student
So you can really see how I know good, authentic Mexican food right?! Haha, no, I’m as gringo as they come.
BUT I do appreciate the food! Spicy, saucy, and oh so good. This is a classic and addicting homemade hot salsa that we make regularly.
The only down side is that it doesn’t last long around our home. However, with as easy as it is to make, you’ll be making it as often as we do!
BELOW-Java looking all sweet but 5 minutes before he decided while mom was distracted making hot salsa it would be a great and fun idea to unravel all the toilet paper and rip it to shreds.
I was not too impressed.
Blend all your ingredients in a blender and THAT’S IT!
