This salsa is tried and true. I developed it over a number of years and I always get compliments when I make it. Warning: Salsamole is addicting! Sometimes I like it chunky and sometimes I make it smoother. Enjoy!

Cook's Note

The flavors work so well together. The flavor comes out first and then the heat. Make as hot or mild as you wish. I'm from NM and we like it hot! This salsa goes good with everything from burgers, brats, eggs to steak and tacos.

Excellent recipe. I used just one jalapeno pepper (seeded and deveined) to keep it mild. Really loved it but next time I plan to use lime juice and add cilantro. Someday when the kids are all grown up I'll try it with all the fancy peppers! Read More

I had high hopes for this. It would've made just an outstanding guacamole. I'll probably try it again as just that. But I think what ruined the flavor for me was the can of diced tomatoes. It took away from the flavor quite a bit. I mixed it more than I should've because I had to add salt to add flavor the tomatoes took away! The end result looked like split pea soup. I will try again next time I'll modify and keep it as guacamole. Read More

Bakermom if you make this salsamole again consider leaving out the olive oil instead of the tomatoes. I made some last night and I think the oil is the ingredient taking away flavor. Also green onions instead of yellow can give the recipe a lighter fresher taste because for some people the yellow onion can stick to the palate. Read More

Great Salsamole! We changed it up just a bit... added a single tomatillo and half cup of cilantro. Read More

I have been making a dish very similar to this for years. I only use fresh tomatoes but this last time I used the fresh tiny cherry tomatoes and cut them in half(the colour really popped from them). I also add a big bunch of chopped cilantro and only one jalapeno for the peppers. Make sure that you do not buy over ripe mushy avocados for this recipe or you will have a sloppy mess. For best results add the slightly tender avocado's last and gently toss them only a few times so they don't make a sloppy mess. Chill and enjoy.:)It is always a hit at the parties. Read More
