Homemade Kid-Friendly "Restaurant Style" Salsa
Print Recipe
My children love chips and salsa. It compliments our weekly taco night well. We all agree salsa served in restaurants is so much better than anything bought in a store. I like that they prefer fresh over jarred although sometimes they can be picky with their salsa. If it's too spicy or too chunky they won't eat it. We have found making our own salsa eliminates all complaints! It tastes and looks like restaurant salsa and the consistency and spice is to their liking. Plus, it's SO easy to make and cheaper and healthier to boot!
