An inexpensive alternative to those jar salsas. It disappears at gatherings and the recipe is always requested. I got this recipe several years ago from a neighbor who has since moved, but I think of her every time I make this. Use more or less jalapeño peppers according to heat level desired. I have deleted the bell pepper and used sweet banana peppers. This recipe can be tweaked according to one's personal taste. More or less onion etc. Enjoy!!

Wow! I think another apt name would be Really Kicky Salsa! This stuff'll bite ya...but in a good way! I used one jalapeno but a very strong chili powder, and a 10 oz can of tomatoes with chiles as that was all I could find. The vinegar in this adds a unique touch. I can see throwing this together for potlucks and parties in the future! Thanks for posting. Made for PAC Spring 2011.
