Phoenix was a visit to My Husband's sister and her family. We were waaaaaaay overdue for this visit and we had a fabulous time! Of course, any visit is always filled with food that is hard to resist... we got our fill of amazing Mexican food, but also cooked in at home a few nights.
One of the days we stayed in, My Sis-in-Law made what I think is the best homemade salsa I've tasted.
So many simple ingredients come together for a salsa that will have you finding different ways to use it all the time! This salsa is not just for tortilla chips, which works perfectly well... but, use it on your burger for something different and it takes it to a whole 'nother level!
Another idea is to use it to top your eggs in a tortilla for a healthy and filling breakfast. For another twist on dinner, saute (or pan fry) up chicken breasts and top with this salsa. It's so versatile and makes enough to nibble on for days you will find a million uses for it.
Yummmmm.... more fabulous food and photos to come from our vacation soon!
