This is an absolutely excellent recipe! The recipe claims to make 1.5 cups I came up with 3 cups. It's a good thing though my wife didn't notice the cup missing. I can tell this will be a weekly-produced appetizer. A quick tip: be careful not to overblend (liquefy) I accidentally turned my blender on high for a brief period and it liquefied the salsa. It is still GREAT but I prefer a chunkier salsa texture. Thanks so much for your contribution to my household! By the way I figured that it cost 4.00 (WA St.) to make 3 cups! Read More

I thought it was just okay. Nothing really that great about this recipe. It tasted very bland. Not enough flavor for my taste buds. Read More

I really enjoyed this salsa. I did make a few changes I used two regular tomatoes drained and 1 can of stewed tomatoes used an extra clove of garlic added some green onion and two extra serranos for more heat and a tablespoon of lime juice. I might just use all fresh tomatoes next time since I could taste the "canned tomato" but it was still delicious. I may also dice half the ingredients and pulse the other half next time so it comes out chunkier. Read More

Always hunting for the best tasting jarred salsa and never finding it I decided to try making it myself. My hunt is over!! This is hands down the best salsa I've tasted even better than the home-made salsas I've had at restaurants. I modified it a bit I used 3 cloves garlic one can of stewed tomatoes and chopped 4 plum tomatoes as I like having some fresh tomatoes 1 serrano chili and 1 jalapeno and a bit extra chive. Next time I'll just do 2 serranos as I could have had it a bit hotter this was about medium heat. But otherwise this is perfect salsa! Read More

I thought this was a really great starter recipe. The stewed tomatoes definitely made it too sweet but the addition of lime juice made all the difference. A little mild for my tastes - next time I'll probably leave the seeds from one of the peppers in. Read More

AWESOME!!! I finally have a recipe to make authentic restaurant style salsa. I tried so many recipes but no luck until this one. I used canned whole peeled tomatoes packed in tomato juice I drained most of juice (not stewed tomatoes). I used a few tabs of regular chopped oniom instead of the green onion. I used 1 whole habernero pepper (seeds removed). I pulsed the ingredients in the food processor for a thick slightly chunky consistency. Pretty hot use less pepper for a milder salsa. This recipe is PERFECT!!! Read More

I made this as written and thought it was great but not perfect. I added some water some tomato paste from a tube and some sugar. The extra water tomato paste and sugar were because the serranos I had turned out to be SUPER hot and my husband (who loves hot things) requested I "thin it out so his nose wouldn't run" and so that's how I toned down the heat. I think that this is very close to perfect though I do feel that the chives contributed nothing that a regular onion wouldn't also have contributed though so while I will make this again I'll use a regular onion (the whole thing too I hate the "half an onion" measurements). My salsa looks identical to the only picture posted of this recipe. Thank you for sharing! Read More

I loved this Salsa I made it for a party we had and I know I am making it for my son's birthday party (there will be lots of people). I think it's the best salsa I've ever had. I used to make my husband go out to Mexican Restuarants to get me salsa and cheese dip almost 3 times a week while I was pregnant so I had my share lol. Highly recommended!! Read More
