Our college-age daughter, two of her friends and a nephew ate a quart of this salsa with chips in one sitting. They loved it so much that they each took a quart home with them. So be sure to make lots! —Carol Carpenter, Jansen, Nebraska

MY REVIEW

Awesome recipe! Made it for poker night and everyone loved it. I couldn't find a serrano pepper at our local store (stationed overseas) I used a habanero pepper which added a red habanero pepper that added a very nice spice. If you don't like too spicy I don't recommend this. Will be making a double batch next time.
