Simple Spicy Salsa

I was making Carne Asada Tacos for dinner for one of my best friends who was coming to town for one night. I usually make the Roasted Tomato Salsa but since it was in the 80′s today, I didn’t want to heat up the house with the oven. I grabbed a few things and threw this salsa together – I am so glad I did! It was tangy, spicy, and full of flavor! We all liked this salsa, including my daughter. She didn’t care that it was so spicy because she loved the flavor so much. My son, on the other hand, said it was too spicy for him.

Combine the tomatoes, diced onion, diced green onion, serrano pepper(s), garlic, lime juice, cumin, oregano, coriander, sea salt, and freshly cracked pepper, to taste, together in a bowl.  Blend well using an immersion blender. Taste and re-season if needed. Cover and set aside for at least 30 minutes prior to using it. Serve with chips. Enjoy.
