We loved it plain on tortilla chips, or used as Nachos topping along with sour cream, etc. It is quick, easy, and great. I adjusted the hot pepper level to our family's taste.


This was a little too sweet for our tastes. That said, it was still a thousand times better than any purchased salsa I have ever tasted. (And we are in Texas, so we have TUBS to choose from). I also added a large amount of ready to use minced garlic. Next time, I'm going to drain the stewed tomatoes and cut back on the sugar. A dash of lime juice might be nice also. I did use extra fine sugar so that it would disolve quickly. It made a huge amount for a small price from ingredients I keep in the pantry. I also suspect that this is how Mexican restaurants churn out gallons of salsa every day. It was that good! Thanks for sharing such a wonderful recipe. No more canned salsa for us!!


this was a great and my guests loved it
