  1. We made three different salsas today to can and saved small amount of each to try. This was our favorite. It's a mild salsa (and I used 3 jalapeño peppers and omitted the hot sauce). It's perfect for me and my husband said it tastes like it has more flavor than the other two we made. Thanks for posting.
  2. Wow this was great!!!! Not hot at all.But I can fix that.
  3. This is the most wonderful tasting salsa I have ever eaten!<br/>It seems like I have made a batch a week since I found it!<br/><br/>I have shared it with close friends, and even just nice people at my grocery store,<br/>doctor,s office, etc., and they have also said the same exact thing about the flavor.<br/><br/>I have made it mild (like this) and HOT (enough so I won't eat it), and medium.<br/>No matter the temp. the flavor stays the same, never distorted.<br/><br/>Thank You SO MUCH!!<br/>Debbie
  4. This is the first homemade salsa recipe that I have made and liked!! It has great flavor and isn't complicated to make. I didn't want a salsa that was too hot so I left out the drops of hot sauce figuring I could always add it later. I also left out the onion since I can't have onions and you can't even tell. Great recipe!
  5. This salsa is excellent! It tastes fresh in the dead of winter! Thanks for the great recipe!!!


I love to cook and try new ideas. I think it's my creativeness that comes out with every meal. Nothing can be too challenging.
