Mom's Amazing Salsa

Alicia .


According to mom, she has spent 30 years perfecting this salsa and I agree, it is perfect.

Although it sounds crazy she does not recommend doubling this recipe. If you want to double it make 2 separate batches and put them together. We don't know why and know it sounds weird, but it doesn't come out right just doubling the ingredients.
