I like this recipe so much because that fresh taste can’t be beat. The recipe is from my own kitchen, developed by me. I've tried other can tomatoes in this recipe, but you can not beat the great fresh taste and texture of Red Gold Tomatoes. I use the plain Stewed Tomatoes because I use a food processor and it keeps the texture thicker. The heat can be adjusted to taste. Making this recipe with the amount I have specified gives it a medium heat. Take or have this salsa at your next party and you wont believe the compliments you'll get. Make sure you let them know you made it yourself.
