Tommy's Cinco De Mayo Salsa

“A salsa with a lively flavor, easy to make. I have tried producing many varieties of salsa, but with a few hints from and elderly Mexican Women this one came out great. My neighbor walked in and stated, "Your house smells delicious". Do not let the list of ingredients sway your decision to try this recipe. Chopping is therapeutic and the results are amazing. Freezes well.”
