This is the first time I've made homemade salsa. This recipe was super simple and quick. The final product is delicious!

MY REVIEW

I used a dried chipotle pepper in place of the jalepeno pepper. I like my salsa on the smooth side so I zapped all ingredients in the food processor on pulse. Great recipe!
