This restaurant-style salsa is absolutely delicious. This recipe was inspired by my Hungry Harvest. I received two bags of Fresno chili peppers, which I’ve never cooked with before. Husband isn’t a big fan of spicy foods, so I was a little nervous about what I was going to do with all these peppers. So I found this recipe and just substituted Fresno chili peppers instead of the jalapeno peppers.
This recipe is a cinch to put together, everything just gets blended together in the food processor, or blender. You can adjust the spice by leaving in the seeds and ribs of the peppers if you like a spicier salsa.
