Spicy Mexican Salsa

By Divyagattani88
Life wouldn't be fun without salsa- the dance and the dip, both are amazing, spicy and interesting. Though Salsa dance is on my wish list too but here I am showing "How to make spicy salsa dip". 
   Salsa dip is spicy, tangy, easy, yummy and satisfying. You can use this dip for so many recipes. Tortillas, Nachos, Frankie, Calzone and you can put it on bread too. It is super easy and can be done in a jiffy. Some people make dry salsa (without cooking the vegetables) but I prefer to make it like this.
