Spicy Salsa
(Air Fryer Recipe) 


This spicy restaurant style salsa doesn't have to be just enjoyed with tortilla chips. You can drizzle it onto your nourish bowl, grilled fish, or even on your breakfast eggs. Salsa can be a delicious way to enjoy a dose of veggies in your day. I always love roasting veggies to make salsa or chutneys since it brings out even more flavor. This air fryer recipe is an easy way to get that roasted salsa flavor in just a few minutes. All you do is toss jalapenos, tomatoes, garlic and other veggies into an air fryer then blend away with spices and lemon juice to create a flavorful salsa. Check out the easy recipe below!
