Fresh Salsa

This is one of those recipes that only takes 15 minutes to make and tastes a million times better than anything from a jar. If you don't have the time to dice the tomatoes, you can pulse them a few times in a food processor. The salsa won't look as pretty, but it will taste just as fabulous.


This recipe goes with Mexican Breakfast Burritos, Veggie Tostadas with Black Beans and Easy Guacamole, Chicken Soft Tacos
