You save money from buying fresh salsa...
you know that tomatoes are the most expensive part of salsa.. right? The stuff you scoop into it is worth maybe 10-20 cents, and shit costs $20 a jar... kinda insane.
bomb as fuk salsa recipe:
2 cans diced tomatoes $1.50
1 tablespoon lemon juice $0.05
2 jalepenos chopped (if you're a bitch, one) $0.10
1/4 cup chopped cilantro $0.10
1/4 onion $0.15
1 minced garlic clove practically free
1 tsp salt, practically free
toss all in blender, blend for just a few seconds. total cost is under 2 bucks, bout the same as yours, for a ton of really good fresh salsa.. you can't powder stuff like jalepenoes mang.
edit: oh and ofc if you dice your own tomatoes it gets about half that price, butI'm a lazy fuck most of the time and canned tomatoes are still pretty good.
