    Yummy! I added corn and black beans and I did not peal the tomatoes. I diced some smaller chunks and some a bit larger. It is good I will make it again.

    Lovely salsa to hot for my taste buds but my hubby and friends just love it.. I make a similar milder one for myself and I added a dash of 1/4 tsp instead of the heat.. Little extra flavour ...

    This was the first time I made salsa. I made some adjustments by adding red peppers and seasonings, and omitting the jalapeño peppers. I mixed it together in a food processor. Delicious!!

    Salsa is always good, and this is no exception. I ran out of tomatoes so I use this in my grilled cheese sandwich instead. It makes a great addition to a grilled cheese sandwich too.
