Total Time: 1 hour (guess) | Active Time: | Makes: ~ 8 cups

When this recipe was created I was on a salsa binge. A friend asked me for the recipe and I didn’t know. He bought the ingredients and I cooked while he measured and recorded and this is the result.
It never seems to be able to cool because it gets eaten quickly.
