Hermano Roberto's Simple Salsa

Hermano Roberto's Simple Salsa

Paul Kelly

"This is a simple salsa recipe I learned from my brother-in-law who worked at an authentic Mexican restaurant. Boiling the jalapeno peppers is the magic to the recipe. This is great with tortilla chips, tacos, or other Mexican recipes."

This is a really good recipe. By mistake, I bought a can of high quality (Italian name) seasoned diced tomatoes but it made this salsa even more delicious!!
