Homemade Salsa

My favorite snack in this decade has got to be chips and salsa. Full of chunky veggies — who doesn’t love to get a big dip! It is usually served as an appetizer in many restaurants along with my other favorite thing….tortilla chips!
Salsa contains low or no fat, is very low in calories and is can even be used as a condiment on burgers, baked potatoes, eggs and other foods. It is also delicious on chicken, seafood, and bean dishes, as well as rice! Mmmm, mmm!
