Quick and Easy Salsa {Restaurant Style}

I have a serious chips and salsa problem. I can be watching what I am eating and doing well at eating healthy, fresh, low carb foods. Then it happens. The family wants to eat at Chili’s or the local Mexican restaurant. And the chips and salsa show up in front of me and I lose all self control. Have you been there? Please tell me I am not alone.

Now, I have conquered my own restaurant style salsa at home.

Chili's Restaurant Style Salsa And the farm store by us, Rural King, sells the most amazing tortilla chips. You know the thin and super crispy ones. I buy them three pounds at a time…

Grab a can of Rotel and a can of diced tomatoes our into the food processor. I love the Red Gold diced tomatoes with cilantro and lime juice when I make salsa. Adds a little extra zip.
