Salsa Verde and Homemade Chips

Salsa Verde and Homemade Chips

This past weekend was a flurry of activity between out of town visitors, Airbnb preparations, and an unexpectedly long trail run with friends. I like to be busy but I am ready to move on from the Airbnb work. We are still waiting for one more city inspection before we can finalize the space. Our first guest will arrive in just two weeks!

Chips and salsa are an easy buy at the grocery store but the homemade variety is the way to step up your game. As a side to taco night or an appetizer for a party, homemade chips and salsa verde are quick and flavorful. The recipe has chips for 2 people so double / triple as needed. The salsa recipe is about 1 1/2 cups so you can save the extra for later.
