Mexican salsa is a versatile dish that can also be enjoyed at Milwalky Taco. In case you are not sure of how to make the salsa, here is a detailed explanation of the useful tips to help you:

Use the right tomatoes

By right tomatoes, it means that you should use fresh and ripe tomatoes. This will ensure that your salsa is not too watery and has a good flavor. If you want to use canned tomatoes, then make sure to drain them before using them in the salsa. Alternatively, you can also use roasted tomatoes for a smoky flavor.

Do not skip the jalapeño pepper

The jalapeño pepper is what gives salsa its spice. If you cannot handle spice, you can either remove the seeds from the pepper or leave them out altogether. However, we would advise you to at least give it a try!

Season to taste

This is probably the most important tip. Make sure to taste your salsa before you serve it. This way, you can adjust the seasoning to your liking. Add more salt, pepper, or lime juice until it is perfect!

Get creative!

As we mentioned before, Mexican salsa is a versatile dish. Get creative and add in other ingredients that you think would taste good. Some ideas include mango, pineapple, or avocado. 

What not to add to Mexican salsa

  • Chocolate: This combination might sound strange, but it is quite common in Mexico. However, we would not recommend it as it takes away from the fresh flavor of the salsa.
  • Cheese is a popular ingredient in dips and sauces; however, it does not. It can make the salsa too rich and creamy, which is not what you are looking for.
  • Mayonnaise: Mayonnaise is another ingredient commonly used in dips and sauces. However, it does not add anything to the salsa and can make it taste weird. So, we would advise against it.

Final Points

Now that you know how to make the perfect Mexican salsa put your skills to the test and enjoy! Making your salsa is a great way to save money and control the ingredients. Salsa is a healthy option that is low in calories and fat.
