Celebrate Cinco de Mayo With Bone Broth Salsa

Salsa is one of those items that you always end up buying in a jar, when really it’s super simple to make. With our easy recipe from the Bare Bones Broth Cookbook, all you need is your salsa ingredients, a food processor (or blender), and a saucepan.

We know what you’re thinking—a saucepan? Well unlike other salsa recipes, we like to simmer the salsa mixture on the stovetop to help make those wonderful flavors come alive.

This recipe is the perfect table salsa and its earthy, spicy flavor complements a wide range of dishes as well.  Celebrate Cinco de Mayo this year with your homemade Bare Bones Bone Broth salsaand a margarita or two!
