I made this along with my standard pico I make. Both went over great! This one is more cost effective as I didn't have to spend as much on fresh tomatoes. I did however modify it to meet special needs of someone who cannot handle heat. I bought two cans of diced tomatoes, a fresh anaheim pepper. I made the recipe first with one can, but it by far needed two. I will be using this again.
