Adela's Salsa

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Karen From Colorado

This salsa recipe comes from a Mexican co-worker. She makes it every time we have food at work. She doesn't speak much English and I don't speak much Spanish, but I did manage to ask her how to make her salsa. She wrote it in Spanish, but I was able to translate it. Like me, she doesn't measure anything. That meant that I had to try it myself a few times to get it right. I hope you enjoy this simple and delicious salsa as much as I do either on chips or your favorite Mexican dish.

This recipe was simple and delicious. I had a lot of tomatoes out in the garden that needed used and this was my first time making salsa. It was quite spicy and super tasty on our fajitas!
