This salsa is a bit different in that you blacken the onions before adding them to the mix. Ila says they have this salsa in the fridge almost all year and that is KICKS @$$!!

Very good, very HOT, salsa. I am totally amazed by step 4 (you can add crushed red pepper) - it was pretty spicy with the jalapenos (I used 2). I added a clove of garlic and put a handful of chopped, fresh cilantro into the blender instead of just using it for garnish. Really good! Made for Photo Tag.
