Frugal Friday - Make it Yourself

 Is there honestly anything better than homemade salsa?  Maybe I'm biased?  I do live in Texas!

It's so easy to plant a salsa garden, and the fruits of your labor are just about the yummiest thing on earth!

And there really aren't any special skills needed to make salsa, just a lot of chopping and cutting.

To make, dice:
- six large tomatoes (seed them first, it's super easy, learn how here)
- 1/2 a large onion
- 2 jalapeƱo peppers
- A small bunch of fresh cilantro
- 2 cloves garlic

Top it all off with a squeeze of lime and a bit of salt and pepper then let it set overnight.  Serve with chips, our favorites are Xochitl. Yum!

You can also blend all of these ingredients together.  We happen to like ours chunky, more like a pico.

This is part of a series of Frugal Friday posts which focuses on items that you routinely buy that you can actually make, cheaper and yummier!  Here's the full list:

- Fancy Desserts
Baby Food (I still can't read this post without laughing, then shaking my head in shame)
Pancake Mix (like Bisquick)
