  • Easy salsa verde recipe with a touch of sweet and spicy! Enjoy with tortilla chips or with your favorite Mexican dish.

    One of my biggest weaknesses is chips and salsa. Seriously the best snack ever. Can I get an amen?!

    Once I moved to the midwest, I realized you just can’t find salsa like you can in AZ. Luckily it’s pretty easy to whip up in a blender. This salsa verde recipe reminds me of one from my favorite Mexican restaurant back home. So good!
