Wait a minute, you cook salsa?

I’m as surprised as you are, friends. All this time wondering why my salsa didn’t taste like my friends! This recipe is generously donated by a former El Paso TX chica, Daisy Edwin. (Gracias!) We met in Germany working at the same elementary school. Funny how sometimes you have to travel halfway across the world to find someone from your hometown!

She would make this salsa and bring it to me to share with my husband, as we were desperate for delicious Mexican. What a generous soul! As wonderful as Germany’s food selection is, authentic Mexican is not on the menu. Sometimes they serve brown gravy on burritos, people. This is not a joke. It really happened.

After enjoying for many times, the mystery is solved and I can finally make it myself! Hooray! Gracias Daisy!
