Easy 5 Minute Salsa

I am OBSESSED with salsa. I love it. I love it with the classics like tortilla chips and tacos but I also don’t hesitate to use it on top of my eggs or baked potatoes. Salsa is an amazing condiment that is packed with flavor without the fat and is also a good source of Vitamins A&C. While there are many amazing store bought brands, I decided to whip up a batch of my own that, if I do so say myself, rivals my favorite store bought brands. Since this salsa recipe is SO easy, I think it’ll definitely be a frequent flier in my house!

1/2 of a Green Bell Pepper
1/2 of a Small Jalapeño, Seeds Removed
