I was delighted when my son-law-law brought home a salsa recipe from work that he likes because, I entered it into the Mexican food contest. He made it a few times and I decided to tweak it using fresh produce instead of so many canned ingredients. My daughter and I made it this way instead. It was so much tastier! I hope you like it as much as we do!

Step 5: Sunshiine's Final Thoughts
We all liked this salsa much better. We eat it with chips and top tacos with it. My son-in-law likes it on his steak! I hope you give it a try. I am going to try this recipe using Rol-tel next time, just for kicks.
