    Delicious! I have never had warm salsa before and I was very pleasantly surprised. I loved this salsa!! The jalapeno provided just the right amount of zing, and the cilantro put the needed finishing touch to it. I haven't tried it cold yet, but warm...it was yummy! Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.<br/>**Made for ZWT 8 Spain/ Portugal Pick-A-Pepper Challenge**

    This salsa is a nice change from tomato based salsa and those with lots of cheese.

    This was so good! I waited a few hours after I made it to enjoy it, so that the flavours can blend well with each other. The lime juice went well with this salsa, and the jalepeno was not overpowering.

    I enjoyed this with some rice. I preferred it room temperature. Love the lim and cilantro in it! Thanks! Made for 123 Hit Wonders game.

    I made this just as written and it was really good, but I think I might have enjoyed it warm more in December than in August. (northern hemisphere) But cold-out-of-the-fridge, it is fantastic!!! Yummy! Thanks! Reviewed for the July Veg*n Recipe Swap.


I live in Knoxville, TN with DH, my beautiful son, and the most spoiled cat on the planet! I grew up in Cincinnati and landed in TN by way of Bloomington, IN and Santa Fe, NM. Needless to say, it's been a long, strange trip!! To explain the name: I was veg for 11 years, vegan for 1. In the last year or so I started eating poultry and fish again, but my brother-in-law's nickname for me (smelly vegetarian) has always stuck. Also...thanks a million to my Zaar fairy godperson :)!!! <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Holiday-plaid_HPI.gif"> <img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v726/annacia/Permanent%20Banners/cc-banner-7-09.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Participation.jpg"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PACfall08partic.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/590105/hcabc.jpg> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b2/kiwidutch/My-3-Chefs%20banners/my3chefs2008Small.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
