“I live 15 miles from the border with Tijuana. Fresh Mexican food is everyone's favorite. We are always on the quest to find the best fish tacos, surf and turf burritos, food truck, etc...but all that needs good salsa. A good salsa will make anything taste good. This is my version based on all my friends, neighbors and local food worker's advise. I serve this with chips but I personally love it with cut up vegies like carrots, celery, etc... Yes, vegetables on vegetables. It's my favorite dip. Also great with scrambled eggs.”
