Warning:
This salsa is just for those who likes SPICY SALSA, if you don’t like spicy salsas avoid making this salsa (check out my other salsa recipe here), unless you want to experiment a little bit, I’m sure it will add a nice kick to your tacos or anything else you want to try it with.
This salsa goes perfect with almost everything! But best with chicken, fish and my favourite Steak Fajitas and guacamole.
My friend Nadia is gonna kill me! she gave me her secret recipe and I’m giving it to everyone, but… she doesn’t need to know, right? 😉
