Three Sister Salsa

READY IN: 2hrs
Recipe by Calee

This makes a mild salsa which is my family's favorite! Every year I triple this recipe. When the three sisters make this they add 1 cup chopped cilantro. But I don't.

This was an excellent base recipe, my family loves it. I did add cumin and black pepper just to add a little more kick. Oh yeah we like it hot, so we left more seeds in the jalapeno's. I'm not sure why I canned it. We open a jar everyother day!
