"I do love this recipe but I omit the jalapeno peppers. The tortillas are super easy to prepare start to finish. Been using this salsa as a fresh summer dish since my son was born 16 years ago. Don't be turned off by the peppers and onions. They add something special. A little savory with the sweet."
