    Heather. Heather. Heather. OH MY WORD. This salsa was SO good I literally felt tears forming in my eyes when I took the first bite- not for the spice but for the JOY of the BEST SALSA I HAVE EVER EATEN. Truly. I know that sounds like hyperbole but I mean it sincerely. I have always wanted a salsa to taste like this. Now I know my missing link: roasting. (I did add 2 T fresh lime juice). Perfection. From the bottom of my heart- THANK YOU, darling girl.

    • OMG. nicest comment EVER. Thank you Amy. Stuff like this makes it worth what I do.

    Great recipe exactly the one I’ve always used except with lime juice and water for right consistency. The pepper in the picture is a poblano not Anaheim.
