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

Makes: 3-4 cups

  • 1.5 pints cherry tomatoes, chopped into quarters
  • 3 tomatillos, diced small
  • 1 red bell peppers, diced small
