My husband's mom, Connie Swanson, prepared a big batch of this pretty and zippy salsa to serve at our wedding reception. It's very special and fresh-tasting. There's no need to peel the tomatoes since they're so finely chopped.

"I was looking for a recipe for salsa that taste similar to paste picante sauce. This one comes very close.I used 4 jalapenos. It was really spicy but very good. Next time i will use 2 or 3."
