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!
Easy 5 Minute Salsa
Yield: About 4 Cups
1/2 of a Green Bell Pepper
1/2 of a Small Jalapeño, Seeds Removed
1/2 of a Sweet Onion
2 Cloves of Garlic

2 Tbsp Lime Juice (1/2 – 1 lime)
2 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1/4 Tsp Salt
- Cut the green pepper, jalapeño pepper, onion, tomato and garlic into chunks and add to food processor.
- Drain the can of tomatoes and place half in the food processor. Add the lime juice, apple cider vinegar and salt.
