Paul's Salsa

salsa recipe


I have become picky about salsa ever since a friend of ours, Paul, made salsa for us. His salsa recipe is fantastic, and while the flavor is intially sweet (the recipe uses sugar), it ends with an extra kick (the recipe also includes serrano peppers and paprika). I had to have the recipe after I tried it. I make it for parties or just to have as a healthy and fresh snack. Thanks Paul!
