Do you like salsa? I do. So much so that when I go to a restaurant that offers chips and salsa, they’re usually devoured within the first five minutes of landing at my table. #stayhungry For a long while, I wondered how that delicious salsa was made. I mean, let’s face it, if you’ve purchased a jar of salsa from the store, you know what I’m talking about. Store bought salsa doesn’t have anything on the stuff you get at restaurants – it’s not the same in taste or in texture! If you agree with me, then you’ll be happy to see what I’ve got for you today: a tasty restaurant-style salsa recipe! And the best part is it’s not even labor intensive! Just grab your food processor or blender, dump the ingredients in, and you’re good to go! Whenever you get a hankering for chips and salsa, I got your back: give this recipe a try and enjoy its tasty goodness!

  • If you can’t find green peppers, you can always replace with one jalapeno or a can of Rotel
  • If you don’t want to do that, you can always find fire-roasted tomatoes that come with green peppers in it already!
