Nicckpx9: "I made this today for my boyfriend and me." I am guessing you are not an English major

MY REVIEW

Flavor is much improved with a squirt of lemon juice or lime juice & a small can of diced green chile. I didn't use oil inthis recipe which makes it even more healthy

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 20, 2009

So, I tried made this today for my boyfriend and I for our 6 month anniversary and I used it as an appetizer for dinner with my family. Everyone loves it and I personally think it is the best salsa I have ever tasted.
