This homemade Salsa is a simple dish that is perfect to serve with tortilla chips or as a topping over Mexican food like tacos, burritos etc.,

Salsa is made with fresh tomatoes and onions which is really refreshing. Spice can be adjusted to your taste by just adding or reducing the amount jalapeños. Since I couldn’t find jalapeños here, I had to adjust with green chilli. Kids like spicy salsa so it worked out for me.
