 When we have our weekly taco night, I usually make pico de gallo. Pico has a chunkier texture. Today, I made a traditional salsa that was perfect for our Fiesta!  I used roma tomatoes, cilantro, garlic, purple onion, and jalapeno…. I love the festive colors!

 I used the food processor to make the salsa making process go faster and its the best way to get that classic salsa consistency.
