I am going to share with you a top secret recipe (ok not really!). There was a restaurant where I used to live in Costa Mesa CA, called Mi Casa. Their salsa was the best. It was thick, chunky and oh so flavorful. Then the restaurant was sold and the new owners did not make it quite the same. A little while later I became friends with the original owner and guess what she shared with me......her salsa recipe. It's great because you can make it year round. It is so delicious, versatile and I could eat a whole batch with a spoon. It is that good! The original recipe has you canning part of it and then adding to that. It is so easy I just make it fresh each time.
