It's 'Taco Tuesday'! What better recipe can I give you than a delicious addition to your taco night menu? Personally, I am not a fan of store-bought salsa. So, I always make my own. I have a few salsa recipes that I make. I usually alternate depending on which one I feel like having or what ingredients I have on hand. Then, there are those days that I make a few of them. This one is super easy to make and you are pretty much guaranteed to have most of the ingredients on hand.
