Tomato Sauce Salsa

Hello all! My hometown has one of the best Mexican food restaurants, Tacos Jalisco. This restaurant specializes in authentic Mexican food, including street tacos and massive bean & meat burritos. Their salsa that tops off their tacos is spicy, adding the necessary heat to the simple meat, onion and cilantro filling upon two small corn tortillas. This salsa is a take on the salsa I grew up enjoying.

Smooth, delicious salsa, perfect addition to a wholesome meal.
