    So I was hooking up these Beer Battered Recipe Fish Tacos with Avocado Lime Sauce and dang it I wanted some chips and salsa!  Chips I had, salsa I did not.  Well, I’d like to think I’m savvy enough in the kitchen that I can whip up my own salsa so I came up with a simple Restaurant Style Salsa Recipe.  Crazy easy and literally less than 5 minutes to make, believe it or not.  Really you just prep an onion and garlic, and everything else comes together in the blender or food processor.  If you’re looking for a really good and quick snack or appetizer, then be sure to try out this Restaurant Style Salsa Recipe!
