"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 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!

Love this salsa! Dipped chips and scoops and they were so good. Had it for the 4th of July cookout and the kids had it gone in no time. I too added in a few squeezes of lime.

I made this using 1 pound fresh tomatoes that I died and tossed with the remaining ingredients. It tasted marvelous.

Wowza!!!!! This salsa is SUPER GOOD that you could eat with a spoon and wish that it was soup. I used it as part of a Mexican dinner where we had it with chips as a starter and as a condiment with our Mexican Lasagna. My goodness, once you make this you won't want to touch jar salsa again. It's restaurant worthy. I followed it as written but added some lime zest and a bit of lime juice. Thank you AnnJMe for sharing a Keeper!

This salsa was part of a mexican dinner I made and was fantastic with it. I tweaked some ingredients to my taste but otherwise made as is.
