Award-Winning Salsa

A few weeks ago, Michael entered a salsa contest at work. They do fun things like that from time-to-time. Salsa, chili, beans, watermelon seed spitting… Of course he waited until the night before to find a recipe and buy the supplies, and I was tasked with scouring Pinterest for a good salsa recipe. I came across the Pioneer Woman’s (of course!) and it sounded perfect so that is what we settled on.

He ended up winning Second Place! (First Place was green sauce which really shouldn’t even count….).

I didn’t have a chance to take a picture of it, so here is one he took during the contest

This recipe was easy, delicious, and cheap.
