Mom’s Kitchen Sink Salsa

Salsa is a fantastic condiment to make at home. Before we went paleo, salsa was something we loved to pick up at the store with tortilla chips. Sadly, as we’ve tried to find pre-made salsa lately, we found a lot of corn starch, sugar, and other preservatives. When visiting my parents, we were inspired to throw together a salsa recipe my mom had recently made based on a long-time friend’s recipe.

Instead of serving it only with tortilla chips, we used it with our scrambled eggs, tossed it over mixed greens, or snacked on it by the spoonful. If you want the salsa to be spicier, leave the seeds in. Also, if you can’t find long hot peppers, feel free to substitute with serrano or more jalapeño.
