Author Notes

There is nothing better for entertaining than a giant bowl of homemade salsa with chips. The key to this no-frills salsa lies in the combination of sweet tomatoes, meaty tomatillos, and hot peppers. Every bite is festive, spicy, and almost refreshing; summer in a bite. Making this a few hours ahead of serving ensures a more developed, richer taste. —Tasty Plan
