I am a Mexican food fiend. It’s my favorite food group. Yep you read that right. Salsa is my test bed for whether or not a Mexican food place will be good or not. More often than not if the place has good salsa it will have great food.
That being said I have a lot of jalapeños and serrano chiles growing in my garden this year. I have had to figure out something to do with them. My usual go to is salsa. Sometimes I add them to salads and other fun things. This recipe makes a lot of salsa so you may want to share with your neighbors. It’s a good welcome to neighborhood or housewarming gift. My kids love this salsa, lately they have been taking it for lunches. I feel it’s much healthier than a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Have fun with it, it’s pretty forgiving if you want to add things too it.
