I absolutely love Mexican Food and all of the fresh salsas. This one has a nice balance of fresh veggies and smoky spice. You can adjust the heat by omitting the serrano pepper and chile de arbol spice. But if you like spicy...this is perfect.

It is the perfect accompaniment for roasted or grilled meats and fish.
