It’s Cinco de Mayo and Taco Tuesday, and yet we’re stuck at home due to Corona.
But seriously, here’s how you can celebrate Cinco de Mayo at home this year.
I’ve been making this quick and easy salsa for years now and it never disappoints. The best part is, as long as you have most of the ingredients, it still works. For example, in the video I made here, I didn’t have any jalapeños or poblano chilis on hand, which I usually add. If you need to add some heat and don’t have any chiles, add a splash of hot sauce. I also had only a squeeze of lemon juice left, which worked just fine. If you’re not a cilantro fan, no problem, the salsa works just fine without it.
If you’d rather use fresh tomatoes (and I don’t blame you), check out this recipe.
