This is a very tasty recipe for salsa., especially with heavily roasted hatch chili peppers. I use half the water called for in the recipe and only 2 serrano peppers. I seed all peppers and the end result is a slightly heated salsa. The recipe does call for 2 teaspoons of salt which is right on.

This was easy and tasted great with the exception that it was too salty. DO NOT USE 2TBSP OF SALT. I plan to use 2 tsp next time and go from there.
