This is a really good salsa/sauce that will put bottled versions to shame. My best-friend's SIL in Arlington, TX made this for a party once and I had to get the recipe. It makes alot - so it's good for a gathering - or as we use to say in TX - for a "throw-down"!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil, vinegar, salt and accent (first 4 ingredients) just enough to dissolve salt and accent- do not boil.
  2. (If it boils-- you'll have to start over) Chop remaining ingredients separately.
  3. I have found that it doesn't work well if you dump everything in processor at once.
  4. In large bowl, pour vinegar/salt mixture over salsa and mix well.
  5. Best if let set overnight for flavors to blend.
  6. Enjoy with chips, eggs, whatever you like salsa with.

This was excellent and I will never buy store bought again. I used seasoning salt instead of the accent seasoning.

really good. this recipe is just the right blend of all the spices with enough "kick" so you know that you're eating salsa, but not so much that you set your mouth on fire. taste great mixed with avacadoes to make guacamole too.
