Vegan Homemade Mexican Salsa

Vegan homemade mexican salsa with plaintain chips

The first time making this salsa, I made a small amount. I never make a big amount of a new recipes because I don't like to waste food, in case it is less than delicious.

That was a mistake, the salsa didn't last more than one sitting... :)

Who doesn't love tomatoes right? well.. some people don't, but they should :). Fresh tomatoes are low in carbs, they are made from mostly simple sugars, insoluble fibers and water. Studies show that tomatoes and tomato products may reduce your risk of heart disease and several cancers. .Lycopene, which is relatively high in red tomatoes, is a strong antioxidant that can protect your body against environmental toxins and chronic diseases. Tomatoes are also a good source of several vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin C, potassium, vitamin K, and folate.
