Fresh Tomato Salsa

Salsa is a Spanish word for Sauce. This sauce is made of tomatoes, chilies, onion and some spices. It is used as dip along side tortilla chips or as a condiment served along with burrito or tacos. This is a very simple yet delicious dip made in just few minutes. No cooking or baking needed. Just add all the ingredients in a chopper and blend with required spices. Or chop all the veggies ahead of time and mix well with the spices. Either ways salsa tastes fresh and delicious. For best results refrigerate for fe hours before serving. Store this  fresh home made salsa  in air tight container and refrigerate for up to 3 weeks.
