Unquestionably the best salsa I have ever had! The flavor is best when it is allowed to "marinate" in the refridgerator overnight. Also I like it with a few extra jalapenas for spicyiness. This salsa cannot be beaten.

I give this recipe 4 stars for authenitic flavor. However, when I make it again I will be SURE to reduce the amount of onion and jalapeno peppers...especially the onion. I felt the onion overpowered the rest of the recipe. I prefer my salsa mild and this was anything BUT mild, however if you like things spicy go ahead and follow the recommended amount of peppers. I will make this again with a few minor changes. Thanks for sharing such an authentic tasting salsa recipe!

The salsa I made using this as my basic recipe is great! I reduced the amount of tomato juice because I used canned tomatoes with juice. I added 2 cloves of garlic and used fresh lime juice instead of water. I also decided to make a smoother salsa so I whirred it all in my blender. After a taste test, I decided to add pepper and a few dashes of Tobasco. Delicious!

This is such a good basic recipe. Thank you so much for posting it. However, I used only two TB of jalapeno, and it was too hot for me, and I can usually take spicy food. So next time I'll put in a little less. I'm going to use this recipe at our upcoming picnic. I know everyone will love it.

My husband needed to do a demonstrative speech and we picked your recipe for salsa. It takes less than 5 minutes to make and his classmates were asking for the recipe afterwards. He used a food chopper to make it faster. Truth is known, it definately gets hotter the longer you leave it! Absolutely delicious! Thanks Bev!

This is a very easy salsa with a nice flavor I used serrano chiles and used 3 plum tomatoes because it was what I had on hand. This was wonderful with chips! Thanks Bev!
