Instructions Checklist
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine tomatoes, onion, garlic, cilantro and lime juice. Add jalapenos 2 teaspoons at a time, tasting after each addition to see how hot the salsa has become. Jalapeno peppers vary in heat, so it is important to taste the salsa to ensure you do not make it too hot to handle. Salt to taste. Enjoy!

As written I would have to give this a four but I added some stuff that I thought brought it up to 5 s. I used 7 roma tomatos (pureed 2 of them) used a whole vidila onion added 1 c. of corn & 1 c. of black beans (drained & rinsed) I didn't seed the jalapeno & I also added one habanero (I did seed it). At the end hubby & I argued as to whether it needed a bit of sugar or vinegar I won the arguement & we added 1 tbp. plus 1 tsp. of white wine vinegar... this really helped bind the flavors together & strangely enough seemed to add the bit of sweetness my hubby thought it needed. I think we may have just made the best salsa ever! Read More

This is a good basic salsa...now if you really want to make it a California salsa you need to add at least one avocado and do not use so much garlic unless you are looking for a Gilroy taste. Gilroy California is known for its garlic every-thing...garlic perfume garlic ice cream etc. Lets just stick to our basic salsa. Buen provecho!!! Read More

This is quick easy and delicious! Hint though. After chopping the tomatoes I drain them in a collander for a while to eliminate some of the excess liquid. Read More

This is the same recipe I have been making for ages. Everyone loves it and there is never enough no matter how much I make. The great thing about it is that you can simply adjust the amounts of the different ingredients to make it the way you like. I like it spicy so I throw the seeds in with the peppers. Also red onion works really well in this. Read More

ICK! Too much cilantro and too much garlic. I ended up throwing it away. Basic idea is good just reduce cilantro and garlic so it isn't so strong. Read More
