I used to wait tables at Don Pablo's in my college days and have been on the hunt for their salsa recipe for years. My search is over - I finally found a recipe that is close enough to the original product. I did add extra cilantro, but that is personal preference. I generally like a chunkier salsa, but this is perfect as well. It also freezes great - the recipe makes quite a bit and I am the only salsa eater in the house. Thanks so much for posting.
