Chunky Salsa

Homemade salsa is so much better than store-bought and is quick and easy to make.

Whether serving it as a side, garnish or a stand-alone chip dip, chunky salsa is a winner.

Chop the tomatoes, jalapeño, onion, and cilantro finely.

Some people prefer to remove the seeds from the jalapeños, however I enjoy the extra crunch and heat they add.

Mix all ingredients well and sprinkle with salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, and sugar.

Yes, sugar!

I know that seems a little odd for a dish that is supposed to be spicy, but it makes the flavours pop!

Zest 1/4 of a lime and squeeze the lime juice over the salsa.

Serve as a chip dip along side homemade guacamole or pair with chicken fajita taquitos or fried tacos.
