This recipe was adapted from The Pioneer Woman's blog recipe. Everyone who has tried this salsa absolutely loves it. It is close to my Enough For A Superbowl Party Salsa only a much smaller amount. I think that this would make a great Mexican Gazpacho recipe for summertime. I have found that Hunts brand tomatoes is the best for this recipe. There really is a difference in flavor of brands. I also only use Rotel brand because the flavor is consistent. Here are the heat breakdowns: Mild: 2 cans mild (don't use the jalapeno) Medium: 1 can original, 1 can mild Medium-Hot: 2 can original Hot: 1 can original, 1 can hot Hot-hot: 2 cans hot I hope that makes sense.
