Salsa is famous all over the world as a Mexican sauce. The recipe is usually spicy and contains tomatoes that give it a distinct color. It is made using mortar and pestle to release some juices that add to its distinct flavor.  However, these days, there is a huge variety of Salsa available in the market as well as a lot of variations are made in homes. Mexican Salsa is traditionally served with tortilla chips, bread sticks, pitta bread, and raw vegetables or as a spread for tacos, fajitas, quesadillas, etc.  I have tried and tasted quite some of them and to my delight , they have all been very impressive. Hence, I thought of sharing the recipes with you. Here you go!
