Chunky Salsa Recipe

How did I start loving a chunky salsa recipe? My friends took me to try Mexican food at a local place in Cleveland, Ohio. I took one bite of the chunky salsa recipe on the table and that started my love of salsa recipes.

I have since then tried many salsa recipes, but always been a chunky salsa recipe that I prefer. I love the taste of that fresh salsa on a chip.

Salsa Ingredients

Most know that tomatoes and onions are salsa ingredients. To make a good salsa recipe, you need cilantro, lime juice, and of course jalapeño. That combination of vegetables with jalapeño busts with flavor in salsa.

Can You Freeze Salsa?

One question I get asked is can you freeze salsa? Yes, but only for 6 months. Make sure the bags or containers are airtight. You should still leave the room at the top for the salsa to expand once it freezes.
