Mom’s Famous Salsa Recipe

To this day I have not tasted a salsa recipe better than my mom’s. It beats any restaurant salsa by far. Try it and I am 100% confident you will love it! It makes a great appetizer, or try topping your favorite Mexican recipe with it. I recommend these chicken enchiladas, yum! The best part is that you can adjust how “hot” you like it by using more or less serrano pepper. This salsa recipe is very fast and easy, and comes out great every single time. Thanks for sharing your secret recipe mom :)
