Homemade Salsa and Guacamole

My name is Denise and I am a fajita addict! I love, love, love Fajitas and they are more or less on my menu every week. Although they are occasionally chicken, steak or prawn fajitas it is more often than not vegetable ones that I make at home.  Also if I make them at home they have to be Old El Paso as nothing hits the fajita spot as much they do.  If you are having fajitas then salsa and guacamole is a must, you just cannot have them without them as they make those tasty filled wraps  so much better.

I normally buy ready made guacamole and will either use the salsa that comes in the fajita pack or I will buy a Salsa dip.  As we don’t end up eating it all it ends up in the bin, so I decided to try making my own to save waste.  These are the recipes that I use to make my own. They are very easy to make, require no cooking and taste delicious. They are good dips for your nachos too.  This recipe makes enough salsa and guac for around 6 people (depending on how much you like to fill your fajita with, in my case it’s a lot!).
