Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe was given to me by my friend Nellie. It is so simple, scrumptious and has a superior taste to store bought salsa. During the summer, I have made it using half fresh/half canned tomatoes. You can make it as hot or mild as you like depending on the amount of jalapeņo peppers.
