This is a thick and chunky salsa. Don't let the amount of peppers turn you off. This is a *mild* salsa. If you want more heat, just add some of the pepper seeds. I like my salsa chunky, but if you don't, you only need to dice the vegetables finely. Canned tomatoes makes this a quick recipe you'll want to make over and over. UPDATE Aug 18/08: I'm pleased to add that this salsa took first place in the local fair.
