I love homemade salsa. I’ve been trying to find a good store salsa… but real talk, they’re just not good. I’ve bought the kind in the jar, the kind in the deli, the cheap kind, the expensive kind, and they’re just blech.
But this… this is tasty, y’all!
I know. You want to get in there with a straw and just drink it… that’s how I feel about it too. Oh, wait… that’s just me?? Seriously, this stuff is top-notch delicious, and I have been eating anything that I can enjoy with salsa. Mostly the Jenny Craig Quesadilla… but I even made a taco salad this week so I could douse it in salsa.
And, it was another excuse to use my Nutri Ninja… as you’ll see below. Addicted to this thing, I tell ya! It sits on my counter.
