Just like the salsa I enjoyed in a small restaurant in downtown Cancun - took me a while to get it just right!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Chop up the tomatoes to your preferred size.
  2. Dice the onion (if it is a large onion you may only want to use half).
  3. Chop up the cilantro and the pepper.
  4. Put it all into a bowl and squeeze all of the juice from the lime on top.
  5. Add a bit of salt.
  6. stir it up.
  7. enjoy!

Haven't been to Cancun, Mr. Duck_Man, but I can assure you that I'm real glad you have! Your salsa is just dandy. Just the right amount of heat and downright good flavor. Kudos to you for posting a keeper! Laudee C.

I really was glad to find a recipe without garlic as my husband doesn't eat it. I only had dried ciantro and 3 tomatoes. I did use my mini food processor to chop and mix together. We used it for recipe #38947 burrito bake and ate the left overs with chips. I will make this again.
