Haley’s Salsa

haley's salsa #5Ok, I judge Tex-Mex restaurants by their salsa.  If the salsa stinks, I’m not wasting my time!  Harsh maybe, but life is too short for bad salsa.  Haley’s salsa is my personal favorite, and I’m pretty certain I’ve tasted at least a hundred different varieties in the last 20 plus years of Texas living.haley's salsa

Probably one of the easiest recipes that will appear on this blog, it just may be the best.  My plan, reserve this “salsa post” for something like………say Cinco de Mayo, I couldn’t wait. (that’s just too far away) So quick and easy, but everyone will think you’ve spent the day chopping and chopping and chopping.haley's salsa #3

Developed by Haley, her sister Heather and friend Rene, they experimented until it tasted  just right. Hot or mild, finely chopped or chunky, you decide.

A true Texan, Haley was raised on a dairy farm, loves Texas Rangers baseball and wore cowboy boots for her wedding. (love that!)   She is a loyal friend that will fiercely defend to the end!  Thank you Haley!
