Chimera Salsa

Mary Spencer


This is the 2nd year we (my daughter and my self) have made this recipe. We made the recipe after looking at many others and not quite liking any so we grabbed bits and pieces from many different ones and made it into one recipe we liked, Hence the name Chimera.

My husband can not eat spicy foods or any sugar so this is a VERY mild flavorful and thick recipe you can add more spice if you would like but for my family its perfect, and all my coworkers have been dropping hints for me to bring them more.
