My review is for the salsa only. It is nice to know that salsa can be made quite easily at home with canned ingredients when necessary. I used a can of dice cut tomatoes in lieu of fresh and drained them as well as the can of tomato and green chili. The liquid was reserved and some of it was added to the finished product. I love the various suggestions on how to change up the recipe. Some freshly chopped cilantro was my only addition. Made for PAC Spring 2012.
