This Spicy Homemade Salsa recipe is the perfect ‘kick’ for your chips, tacos, burritos and more!

About 12 years ago, we lived in a little town about 45 minutes northeast of where we live now. I worked as a waitress at a small, family owned Mexican restaurant. They made some of the best Mexican food I’d had, and it was certainly better than the other place in town.

I never managed to learn how to make some of the dishes I’d wanted to, like the green chili or enchilada sauce, but I did manage to walk away with a spicy homemade salsa recipe.

Initially, I had written it down, but as the years have gone by, it’s gotten misplaced in the shuffle. I still make it from time to time, since it’s embedded in my memory.

It tastes fabulous on tacos and burritos, but I think my favorite way to eat salsa is with chips and guacamole. I could seriously live on the stuff.

The fact that there’s not a ton of work involved is a bonus. I can have it made and ready to eat in about 15 minutes, not counting the time it takes to taste test. I mean, you’ve got to taste test, right?

I’m a no-pattern-sewing, eye-ball-it-crafting, shortcut-recipe-making kind of girl. Rather than spending a ton of time on complicated recipes & patterns, I prefer to whip things up in a jiffy for instant gratification. I live in Southern AZ with my husband of 22+ years and three of our five children. I’m a sucker for old missions, Snickers candy bars, babies, cocktails and puppies {not necessarily in that order}. I love to travel and one day hope to see other countries like Italy, Austria, and France, just to name a few.
