Joe’s Salsa Recipe

When I met my husband, he could make one thing, and that was a spicy, smooth salsa that he had adapted from his grandpa’s recipe. He had me at Mexican food. I love many kinds of salsas, but this one reminds me most of authentic salsa that you get in a Mexican restaurant- only better. He has perfected it over the years and was sweet enough to make me a batch to blog about. Just in time for Cinco de Mayo. Or a weekend BBQ. Or just because you love salsa.
