A Note About Handling Chilies:

Chilies can burn your skin. It is best
to wear gloves when handling them.
Or, at least, thoroughly wash your
hands with soap and water after
handling them.

Salsa preparation is extremely easy. Most of the time you simply chop up the ingredients and mix them together.

Although you can serve it immediately, it will taste better if allowed to sit at room temperature for up to 30 minutes to allow the flavors to blend. If not served in 30 minutes, please refrigerate.

Freshly made salsa will keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
