      I made this salsa yesterday, and it was outstanding! Everyone loved it. Next time I'll make a great big batch and jar some for later.

      I'm a big fan of Texas Caviar and most forms of salsa.

      Two hab's to 15oz peas is gonna throw some heat around unless you remove the seeds and membrane, lol.

      You can substitute black beans for the peas and I would add the juice of one lime in place of the vinegar in either one.

      This also works quite well as a partial filling for quesadillas, shrimp, chicken or pork works well, just add some diced roma tomatoes, (drained and seeded) and some chili roasted corn (pan roast fresh corn kernels, butter and cayenne pepper till slightly browned) along with your fav shredded cheese.
