Expert Tips

*Four (15 or 16-oz.) cans pear halves or slices, drained, can be substituted for fresh pears. Finely chop pears and stir into chopped bell pepper and chiles. **When handling jalapeño chiles, wear plastic or rubber gloves. Do not touch face or eyes. ***This salsa is also a great accompaniment for poultry or fish.
