I adapted this recipe from one which used a fresh salsa seasoning mix which is no longer available. I found several recipes for salsa seasoning at online sites and adapted them for this recipe. My family loves it! I've had so many people ask me for the recipe, I've made up recipe cards. It's not terribly spicy hot, but can be "heated up" by adding more red pepper to the seasoning mix and more of the seasoning mix to the salsa. It's best chilled overnight. The seasoning mix recipe makes plenty for several batches.
