last summer we spent 10 incredible days in paradise… we swam, played in the surf, discovered the local ruins, “xplored” underground caves filled with stalactites and stalagmites, ziplined our way across the jungle & ate way more chips, salsa & guacamole than i’d care to admit.
while i’ve definitely missed paradise itself, lately i’ve been dreaming & craving the homemade salsa we practically lived on.
let’s face it – salsa from a “jar” just isn’t the same as homemade.
luckily, the hotel chef, shared his salsa recipe with me, as long as i promised not to share it with anyone (other than my close friends).
good thing we are all close, personal friends…
