I've been making this salsa since I was 20 years old. This recipe is so versatile, you can change things around, add other things, etc. Sometimes I add fresh chopped jalapenos, or canned ones along with the canned diced chilies. You can also add cilantro, (YUCK I don't like it!), black olives, even mango! It's good on meat. My hubby loves to make bloody marys with the juice! If your tomatoes are nice home grown, vine ripened ones, you can omit the sugar. We usually serve this with cheese flavored chips such as Doritos. I hope you enjoy this fresh-tasting salsa!
