Salsa me Red White & Blue

I made homemade salsa and guacamole for the first time in my life and it was so super easy so I thought I'd share!

My town has recently been added to the route for the Bountiful Basket program and last week I purchased the firecracker dip pack. I was a little nervous because I hadn't the first idea how to make salsa, thank goodness for Pinterest!!

For those who need a recipe with precise measurements this is not for you and my salsa will probably not taste the same the next time I make it!

I took all the ingredients of the dip pack cut them up, removed seeds on peppers and then placed them all on the grill drizzled with a little olive oil and sea salt. I flipped the veggies after 5 min and grilled for about another 5 min. 

Once done I took all the veggies put them in my food processor with some sugar and tomato paste and that was it! For the Guac I just took half of the salsa mix and added 3 avocados with a few splashes of lime juice and mixed that together. Seriously so easy and very tasty, the nice thing about it is you can make it all your own and add stuff until it is just right!! 


I will be enjoying this salsa and guac with a few beers today to Celebrate America and I hope you have a great 4th of July Holiday!!

  1. I've started making homemade salsa and now the jarred salsa from the store tastes awful! I never knew I was missing out!

  2. That salsa looks delicious! I've never made my own because I'm not a big tomato person and the recipes I usually see always have larger tomatoes in them, but this looks like a homemade salsa I would love!

  3. The salsa looks really good!
