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!

Very easy and quick to make! The flavors are so nice and fresh! I used about 10 green onions and 8 ounces of green chilies. This is so much better than store bought salsa! I did leave the tomatoes on the chunky side and will serve with Fluffy's Recipe #52734. Wont be afraid to make salsa anymore!
