This a very tasty and unusual salsa. You can spread it on french bread too, or use the corn scoops.
The book this comes from is the Salsa Cooking by Marjie Lambert. The book had many recipes for salsas both with grilled and broiled veggies, and also salsa cruda's (not cooked).
This is delish and has a lot of strong flavors competing for attention, so the jalepenos won't be that noticible unless you add some of the veins or seeds.
