Very smooth and fairly mild taste- next time I think I will take some others' advice and add some garlic and cilantro for a little more flavor. UPDATE: I have added about 1 T lime juice, 1/3 garlic clove, and 1 tsp dried cilantro & it makes a HUGE difference in flavor! I truly love this salsa now- so easy to make with what you have & GREAT taste!!!

This was so easy and good. I did add half a lime juiced and a handful of cilantro. After a few hours in the fridg it was very delicious.

This is extremely close to Chili's salsa. This is a "no cooking" salsa but is fresh salsa so that might explain some of the low ratings. The first time I made it I followed the recipe and used canned tomatoes and thought it was good. I also added some black pepper and it gave it some extra flavor. Make sure you chill it well before serving.
2nd time I made it, I used fresh tomatoes (blanched and peeled the skin) from the garden instead of the can of whole tomatoes. Used fresh jalapenos and cilantro. Much better the 2nd time with the fresh homegrown tomatoes (this is key to a better flavor for those who didn't like.). Tomatoes from your garden or vine ripened tomatoes are key to a better flavor for those who didn't like it. Canned tomatoes (in my opinion) are better for cooking.
