I grew up in Saskatchewan and my hubby in North Dakota.. not a lot of spicy foods to be found there! But after moving to Arizona we have fallen in love with the flavors of the South West and Mexico! I am not sure we are ghost pepper ready but definitely can tolerate a little heat now. Hehe!

It’s a sweet and spicy salsa that goes great with tacos, burritos, or as a dip for chips. If you’re looking to try something new it also makes an excellent topping on grilled chicken or fish. It is also delicious ontop of nachos, burritos and eggs.
This homemade salsa is so easy to make you’ll never buy another jar again! Just throw everything into a bowl and mix it together and voila you are done! Super easy!

I am a big fan of smoked tomatillo salsa. It is a beautiful green color and you can control how sweet you make it, which I love. Sometimes at restaurants, the tomatillo salsa is too sweet for me.
Here is the recipe for my texas caviar. It is very similar to this jalapeno corn salsa. I hope you like it too! It has a more smokey flavor from cumin and smoked paprika. MMMMMM!
