Why is Sugar in the Recipe?
Adding sugar to salsa will help cut the acidity from the tomatoes and bring a balance to your homemade salsa recipe. Adding sugar also does a great job of erasing the tart bite.
How to Transform this Salsa Recipe from Mild to Hot Salsa
There are two ways of pumping up the heat. One being to swap out the mild Rotel tomatoes for hot Rotel tomatoes. The second is the peppers. You can simply forget about removing the seeds from the jalapeno peppers and toss them in the food processor whole. Believe it or not the seeds are not the hottest part of a jalapeno pepper. The most spicy portion is the pith. The great thing about using jalapeno peppers is they are available year round (in the US) and the different levels of heat. If you prefer a different pepper then please go ahead and use your favorite.
