Cantina Style Salsa

I’m kind of a brat when it comes to salsa. I grew up eating hole-in-the-wall restaurant style cantina salsa and all those premade grocery store shelf jars always tasted too sweet and processed. So now I just make my own. It goes great with my Carne Asada Tacos, tortilla chips and Green Chile Chicken Chimichangas!Continue reading “Cantina Style Salsa”
