I have never made salsa before, but as I was about to grab a jar in the grocery I thought, why not make my own? Thinking salsa would have green pepper, I included one in my purchases. Lo and behold, practically every recipe had jalapeno and not green pepper. (Odd, since I smell green pepper in the jarred stuff.) This was one of the few that even had green pepper, so I chose it! Very good. Needless to say I didn't have any jalapeno, but I cheated and sprinkled in some of that dry pepper that comes in a jar. :-) I figured I could add more heat later depending on the use. Weird part is that I always cook with salsa and am not into using it with tortilla chips, but I ate some with chips anyway and it wasn't half bad - better than anything I've had in a restaurant. But when I cook with it I don't like all the chunky stuff so the rest went thru the blender. Later in the year when my neighbor is dumping tons of tomatoes on me and I'm tiring of pasta salads, I'll know what to do with them. :-)
