When I saw this recipe on Pinterest, I couldn’t wait to try it. I LOVE chips and salsa. Especially salsa. Seriously love it. At restaurants I ask for a little dish of it on the side when I order french fries. I could eat it with a spoon. And I would, if people wouldn’t look at me like I was insane.
So, I made this and it was AWESOME. Oh. My. God. SO good. It didn’t taste just like Chili’s, but it was very tasty. And so economical. All I had to buy was a small can of jalepenos, which was a whopping $0.80. And it made a TON. Probably about the equivalent of 2 – 3 jars worth. And those jars aren’t cheap… even at the commissary where the prices are awesome, a jar of salsa is still about $3.00. Not to mention the massive amount of preservatives in those jars.
So try this. It’s delicious. And so easy.
