I'm a chile pepper nut from South Carolina. This is an awesome recipe I adapted from a Chilihead in East Texas; it's great if you like fresh salsa. This can be eaten with tortilla chips or as a soup!

I'm torn with how to rate this recipe. For the record I made this exactly as written leaving out the optional mushrooms. While the flavor is good there isn't anything "sauce" about this recipe and you sure couldn't eat it as a soup like the recipe submitter mentions. Was there a blending step that was left out perhaps? As written you will end up with a warm pico de gallo which is fine but don't count on a sauce. Read More
