This versatile recipe is quick and easy, tasty and delicious, and gluten and nightshade free. It is great served hot as a side dish, you could add any meat to make it a main dish, or served cold as a tortilla-chip dip. I have missed salsa since discovering a nightshade allergy, and this is a very tasty substitute that even the salsa-eaters will vie for. I got the recipe from another website, but altered it to be spicier.
