Stolen. It's a bad habit, I know. I hold my head low in shame. I'll be in the confessional-second door to your right.

I don't know where the Valle De Smaragdos is but they sure make a darn good salsa. The only changes I made were to use V-8 juice instead of the tomato juice and to use 5 jalapenos peppers. I'm a burn fanatic.
