      I can certainly vouch for the authenticity of this recipe. Although my family is not from the Yucatan, this type of cooked salsa is found all over Mexico and is very familiar to me. I've made this many times before, but have never measured or counted ingredients. But, I made this salsa exactly as written, and found it perfect for my "heat" tolerance, though not so much for DH! If you want it hotter, and you've already made the salsa, you can add more heat by roasting more jalapenos, then putting a bit of the already made salsa in the blender along with the peppers. Process, then combine with the rest of the salsa. This way, you don't dilute the delicious "roastedness" of the salsa. Thanks for another wonderful recipe, and one that I can pass along when friends ask "how do you make that?" Made for My 3 Chefs 2013.
