"I had this salsa when I was on vacation down in Myrtle Beach, SC a few years ago. It was awesome, and I always wished I could get the recipe to make it at home. I finally did and here it is to share with you! I love to add a good squeeze or two of lime to mine. Very good!"

I baked my own tortilla chips and they were yummy with the salsa. I love lime so I used extra. Most delicious!

I added some lime juice into the mix. Tasted great using whole grain tortilla chips for dippers. Just enough heat for us removing the seeds!

Love this salsa! Made to have with some tortilla chips. Just the right amount of everything. Don't mess with this one. It's great as is! I made mine without the seeds in the peppers to keep the heat down. Saving to make again!
