Easy Blender Salsa


My family begs me to make this blender salsa during football season, with or without company coming over. It's so easy to make, that I don't mind. Use caution with the jalapeño pepper, however. I recommend using kitchen or disposable gloves. These amounts are the flavor my family likes, but you can use less or more jalapeño pepper depending on your tastes.
