“This is a recipe I came up with while trying to figure out what to do with an over-abundance of rhubarb. I'm not fond of sugary, syrupy rhubarb sauces but I love rhubarb and I love salsa, so I figured why not put them together! Just grab a bag of tortilla chips, or better yet make your own, and enjoy! Feel free to adjust ingredients to your liking. Don't like jalapenos? Don't use them. Mix and match peppers however you like, just be sure to use 3 of them. Also, I prefer Nellie and Joe's® lime juice because it's a bit more tart than regular bottled or fresh-squeezed lime juice, but if you can't find it that's fine, just use what you have.”

A great way to use rhubarb without having to add cups of sugar. A tasty salsa; only change I made was to use regular bottled lime juice. My rough chop of the bell peppers was too rough; I had to pulse the food processor too many times and the salsa was not as 'chunky' as in the picture. Makes a lot of salsa; will half the recipe next time. Easy to add more heat; just add more jalapeno or leave the seeds in. It was a hit at my wife's work; many requests for the recipe.
