One of the girls at work brings in, I kid you not, 1/2 gallon of salsa and 2 huge bags of chips for just 14 of us. She makes the BEST salsa. It's uncooked, jalapeno's, no hotter peppers, fresh cilantro, and get this, canned whole or stewed tomatoes and you WOULD NOT KNOW IT. You would think it was fresh tomatoes, it is SO good. It tastes so FRESH, it would drive away any cold you might have, you might start a sweat eating it and it's addictive.

Yes it is.........except she puts in a bunch of cilantro, it's SO good, once you have it you will never go back to any other kind. YUMSTERS, absolutely.
If I meet a guy that makes it this way, I'll marry him.....lol (okay maybe not).

I have become somewhat of a purist with my salsa, after trying a variety of recipes...

A large can of whole tomatoes (chopped), fresh jalapeno, garlic and a bit of onion, black pepper, salt, hot pepper flakes and cilantro if I have it.

Crisp, peppery and delicious.
