I wonder if this recipe can be canned?

Made this recipe so many times. Really good in the summer may add avocado in it next time for creaminess.

Excellent recipe. I used as an appetizer with tortilla chips and jalapeno cheddar crackers. Quick to make, light, simple, and delicious! It was very refreshing on a hot summer day.
