Any Mexican household will probably tell you that there are a million different salsas in Mexico – and amongst the homes of Mexican Americans. There isn’t really a right or wrong way to make your own salsa… the right way is the recipe your family uses and loves. ♥️
My mother in law makes hers slightly different than we do, and when we go to family and friends, theirs is also quite a bit different from hers and ours. This salsa is incredibly easy to make and can be eaten over eggs, tacos, with chips, or even used in tamales.
We love ours in jalapeño and fresh cheese tamales and unlike some, we add cilantro for a little extra flavor.
The recipe makes 1 1/2 Cups and keeps for 2-3 days – if you are using for tamales, it makes just enough for 18-20 tamales depending on how much you use in each. Grab a few tomatoes, a jalapeño… cut up some onion and grab a few cloves of garlic and whip up this salsa in less than 5 minutes!
