MY SISTER-IN-LAW'S SOUTHWEST SALSA

I have a real treat for you today! I love when I get to share “super secret” family recipes for the first time with the whole world. :-) Last week my sister-in-law Denise decided to finally give up her special salsa recipe that has been tantalizing tastebuds for years. I know she’s had loads of people ask her for it, but sometimes a woman just wants to keep her “secrets.” ;-)
