Homemade Salsa

Hey y’all!

I recently made some fresh salsa for snacking with tortilla chips today.

It is a super simple recipe, but it did take a little bit of time to do all the chopping. It tasted AMAZING though!!

For the last few years, I have been buying pepper plants from Walmart. I typically just buy a green bell pepper plant. However, this year I bought a plant with two stalks thinking that I was getting double the pepper action. After several weeks, the peppers on both stalks grew and one was definitely a bell pepper and one was not… I’m still not certain what type of peppers I ended up with – but they are so tasty! I’ve concluded that they are either Anaheim, Hungarian Wax, or Cubanelle. So if you can identify the second pepper, please leave a comment and let me know!

To make my salsa, I used my peppers (the three in the bottom right), tomatoes (also homegrown), cilantro, and lime. I chopped the peppers and tomatoes up into small chunks and put them into a serving bowl. I cut the limes into wedges and chopped up a little bit of the cilantro to put on top.

Promptly after taking this picture, I squeezed the limes in and mixed everything together.Β  Fresh lime juice is the trick to making most dishes taste notably better – tacos, salsa, guacamole, mojitos, pad thai, …I can keep going!

Anyways, since there is so much chopping involved, making this fresh salsa would be great for a gathering to impress your foodie friends!

Again, if you can help me identify the peppers, please comment below!
