Fresh Salsa And Chips

July 5, 2017

Anyone who knows me knows that I love chips and salsa. If I could survive on a diet of chips, salsa and guacamole, trust me I would! Surprisingly, while I make fresh guacamole and mango salsa for tacos at home on a regular basis, I have never made traditional fresh salsa (or Pico de gallo as this recipe can also be called) with fresh corn chips. Before leaving for Halifax I was cleaning out our fridge and I realized that I already had all the ingredients besides corn tortilla’s to make fresh salsa and so I decided to try my hand at it. Making this delicious, mouth-watering fresh salsa was as simple and as quick as what a trip to the grocery store would be to buy salsa in a jar and man oh man is it a whole lot better! Fresh salsa and chips are absolutely happening around here more often!
