Taco Salsa

My Friend, Suzette makes the best salsa EVER! I can't even describe it, it's soo good. Anyway, I finally weaseled the recipe out of her. We all covet it during the winter months when our gardens are little brown sticks and fresh salsa is just a dream.:) This is super easy to can in quart or pint jars so you'll enjoy it all year long.
