Jen's Fresh and Spicy Salsa

Recipe by lilchris

This is the best homemade salsa ever! I originally found this on Everyone always requests it for potlucks and parties. This can be watery so I usually chop the tomatoes first and put them in a strainer basket while I do the rest. I have a small food chopper which really cuts down the prep time on this.

Delicious and fresh are the words I would choose for this recipe. I gave four stars because I like very spicy food. This is a personal observation only and not a critiscim of this recipe. I recommend it. My changes were to add a habenero chili as well. I sauted it over a low flame for 5-6 minutes. This kicks up the heat factor. Thank you lilchris for a great recipe.
