Salsa Momma

America, North: Mexican

I make this dish because it's easy to make and my family and I love spicy foods and this is great to eat on tacos, scrambles eggs or just as a salsa with chips. Are friends are always asking us to make some and bring it when we are having a get together.


12 Roma Tomatoes
4 Jalapenos peppers
Garlic salt to taste
Black pepper to taste
Fresh Cilantro
Freshly squeezed juice from 1/2 lime


Clean and slice the tomatoes and peppers
and place them inside your food processer.
Add the black pepper, garlic salt, fresh
cilantro and lime juice into the processer and chop.
You can eat it right then or chill it. Either way,
it taste great and your friends and family will love it.
