This homemade restaurant-style salsa is a staple recipe. It’s perfect served with tortilla chips or as a topping over your favorite Mexican food, like tacos, burritos, taquitos and so forth. The best party food around and a must-have snack!

You can use canned tomatoes, but I highly suggest using fresh. It makes a world of a difference in the flavor, I swear! You can adjust the ratio of garlic or onion to your taste, but I find the measurements in the recipe provide the perfect flavor balance for all members of the family.

Minimal-ingredient, throw in a saucepan and simmer… this salsa will make you dance!
