This is a recipe I came up with by combining two of my favorite recipes into one awesome recipe. You can make this salsa as hot as you want by adding more peppers.

Pico De Gallo de Alicia

An authentic Mexican salsa made with tomatoes, onions, and jalapenos. Serve with tacos, nachos, tortilla chips, black beans, refried beans, or fajitas or use as an ingredient in many Mexican recipes. My family uses it as a side in which to dip grilled steak. If you like it hot, then this is for you; this pico is not for the faint of heart. It is very hot, which most people in my circle like. If you don't like highly spicy dishes, you might might want to try something less spicy or cut down the jalapeno and use a type pepper that is more to your taste.

Another salsa recipe called for a fresh jalapeno (I think), but I had green chiles in a can on hand. This salsa tastes great, so I'm sticking with it!

This recipe is bursting with flavor! It is fresh and spicy, and did I mention easy? This is the closest thing to restaurant style salsa you will find. The jalapenos and hot pepper sauce (e.g., Tabasco) add spice to the mix and the cilantro, lime juice, and green onions create freshness.

This gorgeous salsa would shine on any big-game snack table. The fire-roasting brings out a tremendous amount of flavor and provides just the right touch of smoky goodness. I'm sure your friends are more than happy with the jarred stuff, but once in a while it's nice to see if they're paying attention.

This is an easy smoky salsa that can be adjusted to any degree of heat that you like by increasing or decreasing the jalapenos!

Chilean Pebre Sauce

Pebre is a Chilean salsa and is most commonly used on bread. It is also used on meats or anything else you desire. My favorite way to use it is on barbecued tri-tip. You can vary the ingredients to suit your taste.

Ex-Girlfriend's Mom's Salsa Fresca (Pico de Gallo)

My ex's mom had the best hand-chopped salsa fresca I have ever tasted back in college. Over the years, I have tweaked it to something my friends and family rave about. The trick for this salsa is marinating the onions and jalapenos in lime juice for about 5 minutes before adding the tomatoes and cilantro. There are two tricks to this recipe: 1. Hand-chop everything. It takes a while, but it is worth it. 2. The marinating is what makes this salsa special. Hope you enjoy.
