I may be proud of my Salsa more than any other recipe. It’s evolved over the years and tastes different based on the tomatoes I have on hand.

So on those occasions when I have a craving and no fresh tomatoes I have to go with canned tomatoes. I’ve found that the fire roasted tomatoes have a slightly smokey flavor and are a bit thicker which makes a better consistency.
