This salsa is a spicy fresh addition to any Mexican meal and it's great on breakfast burritos. If you'd like to decrease the heat of the jalapenos, remove the seeds and membranes from the peppers before dicing them.

We love this recipe! My husband really missed his favorite Chi-chi's fresh salsa and said that this comes really close! You can make minor adjustments to fit any taste. Read More

This was very labor intensive and with the price of tomatoes around here it cost me around fifteen dollars to make this and my husband wasn't that enthused about it. I don't eat salsa so I can only go by what he says. He said it isn't very spicy at all and I used all four jalepenos although that's probably just a matter of individual taste. He also claims it is "missing something" although he has no idea what so he can offer up no suggestions. I think I'll stick with the storebought salsa for now. Read More

This was a hit for people who liked salsa a lot! I served this at an appetizer party. Everyone thought it had a really nice kick. It is fun to make and pretty looking. It takes little time but looks like you worked hard. Next time I would add one less jalapeno to appeal to more people. Read More

It's labor intensive but worth it. Subbed red onion for green. Many mentioned the celery was "different" but in a good way different. Thanks for the recipe Pam! Read More

I made this for a family Christmas party and everyone loved it! My family is big on salsa so for them to love it says a lot. My father-in-law loved it so much he asked me to make him some for his trip next month. You can't go wrong with this recipe. Read More

This recipe is good I had a variety of tomatos left over from a previous dinner of roasted tomato soup. It was nacho night so i made this and it was great. I don't care for cilantro so i used parsley instead and i used pickled jalapeno. Read More
