Recipe by charlie 5

My father-in-law makes the yummiest salsa. As close to fresh tasting as I've had. Gets spicier as it sits. I've marked the oil as optional. My f-i-l insists on it. My sister-in-law insists on not. If you can find jalapeno relish, use 2 cans of that instead of the jalapenos and chilies listed below. Best with thin tortilla chips. Unknown yields.
