I have people asking me to either make this or for this recipe for years. It even won a salsa competition at work!!... I use kosher does make a difference. I have tried whole canned tomatoes and it is not the same. The sugar balances out the acidity from the tomatoes. To reduce the heat, remove the seeds and white part (membrane) of one of the jalapenos. Perfect for dipping! Good with a diced avocado added with the onion and cilantro
