This is beyond HEAVENLY! I prepare this with every Mexican dish I make. I learned from my mum! I don't use olive oil though... - 29 Sep 2008


I am always looking for a good salsa recipe. The tomatoes definitly have to be cooked longer than 5 minutes, and the flavour was really .."blah". Usually a cooked salsa will be mashed or blended. I am not sure if its supposed to be fresh salsa or not..Not happy..still searching for a good recipe. - 29 Sep 2008
