After my mild green chilies are roasted, I peel, dice and freeze them to use all year. This colorful zesty salsa is great with chips or served with other dishes.—Terry Thompson, Albuquerque, New Mexico

I might try this recipe again (although it was very time intensive), but I would only use a dash of vinegar. The end result tasted only of red wine vinegar, all the other flavors were overpowered by it.
