This is a wonderfully rich tomato flavoured salsa with a kick, great to put on your taco’s or use as a dip at your barbeque.
Some salsas just involve chopping the ingredients and mixing them together with no cooking involved, but to achieve the richness and flavour of Mexican Rich & Spicy Salsa it has to be cooked in.
This recipe is for about a cereal size bowl full, but if you have a few people coming over to your BBQ just up the quantities.
