Hey ladies!!! Tonight’s blog post is coming to you from Cancun, Mexico!  We are here celebrating Lexi’s GRadUAtIOn!!! Hip, Hip, Horray!!   I will be sharing all of our trip details soon!  Stay tuned!  

Tonight, I am going to share our family favorite SALSA recipe.  My entire family LOVES Mexican Cuisine.  I could take it or leave it…I know, don’t judge!  But, one thing I do love is a good salsa.  I have searched high and low for the best salsa recipe and we have it down to a science.  We do a tomato garden just so we can make this salsa frequently!

We eat this on everything:  from tacos, to taco salad, to baked potatoes, to nachos.  My favorite way is with THIN and CRISPY Tortilla Chips.
