This was really good! Both in its traditional use as salsa with tortilla chips and piled in a chicken tortilla wrap. As soon as I get another batch made, I'm going to really quickly (i.e. before it all gets eaten too!) put some in the freezer to see how it does in there. If it freezes successfully (and I suspect it might), it will be a great way to preserve both roasted red bells and basil. Thanks for a great recipe.
