‘Half a Teaspoon’ Spicy Salsa

This is a great recipe for Enchiladas or side dish for Tacos adding a mild but slightly spicy depth to your Mexican dishes. Extra chilli or fresh chillies can be added but I am a lightweight when it comes to hot spices so it’s mild all the way for me! I have named this dish ‘Half a Teaspoon Spicy Salsa as the majority of ingredients are used in what the name suggests – half a teaspoon quantities!
