Simple homemade Salsa

Submitted by: JODIBIRD1

Introduction

This is quick and easy to make at home. Sorry the measurements are a bit inexact but I eyeball it with different amounts each time based on how fresh and potent my produce is.

    This is so fresh tasting. You definitely need to add the ingredients carefully (peppers). So taste as you go. I can see this being used as an everyday condiment. - 1/31/09

    Delicious! I had a can of tomatoes and green chiles, so I used that and left out the jalapenos. I guess you could call it restaurant-style. Makes me feel like I'm eating out. I didn't add salt, and it was fine without. - 1/10/09

    Easily the best and freshest salsa you'll ever taste! This recipe is a must have if you are a salsa/Mexican side fan. Goes great with chips or as an ingredient to something complex and has definite repeatability. - 12/30/08

  • Made this last night and gotta say, its probably one of the best salsa's I've ever had. It tastes so fresh and I'm not big on spicy flavors so it was nice being able to control just how much jalapenos I added. - 4/15/10
