    Q & A's Mom's Note:

    This is my recipe for Salpicon. Traditionally it is served on top of tostadas. This is great recipe for get-togethers as it feed a very large crowd. The more you let it sit, once it is finished; the better it tastes. Enjoy! NOTE: The measurements for the olive oil, vinegar, olives and oregano are approximations. I always eyeball. Sorry! Just adjust as you go along. Also, for the chiles use as many as you like. If you like things mild, use 1 or 2. If you like it spicy use 4 or 5; which is what I use most of the time. Make sure the chiles are the pickled kind not fresh, it won't work with fresh chiles.
