More than guacamole and pico de gallo combined, salsa, this one that I call salsa fresca because there is no need to cook, is part of the American diet and it is served in restaurants and available in jars at the grocery stores across the country.salsaThis salsa fresca is not comparable with the commercial ones. It is yummier and every minute you spend making it, it is worth it. I made it with home canned tomatoes but it can be made with regular canned ones. To make the chili flavor not so hot and spicy, I roasted the jalapeño pepper and then deveined and seeded it. salsa frescaI hope you like my recipe!
