Tommy's Cinco De Mayo Salsa

READY IN: 2hrs 45mins
Recipe by Tommys

A salsa with a lively flavor, easy to make. I have tried producing many varieties of salsa, but with a few hints from and elderly Mexican Women this one came out great. My neighbor walked in and stated, "Your house smells delicious". Do not let the list of ingredients sway your decision to try this recipe. Chopping is therapeutic and the results are amazing. Freezes well.

There is no way I'd have made this for myself ~ Way, way too hot for my insides! However, as soon as I saw the recipe, I knew it'd be just the right thing as a gift for some friends of mine, whose heritage comes from 'South of the Border, Down Mexico Way!' And, I was right ~ THEY LOVED IT & insisted on a copy of the recipe! Sorry I didn't taste it, but according to my friends, you deserve all the stars I can give you!
