We really enjoyed this salsa. I had to broil instead of grill, but it worked great. I only used half the amount of water called for. So simple and flavorful, Thanks for posting this delicious recipe.

Haven't tried it yet but I have recently been diagnosed with heart disease and I am on a low sodium diet. Can anyone tell me how to make salsa that still tastes good without all the salt. Thanks, Kathy

so perfect. I have been making this for years now and am just getting around to reviewing in anticipation of a bumper crop of tomatoes that will be turned into this amazing salsa and canned. Will make a jar or two with chipotle just to kick it up a bit.

Adding information here - I replaced 1/2 of the water with fresh lemon juice and put in a ground dried chipotle for an amazing kick on this.

The reason the water is in there is this salsa at Baja Fresh is very runny. If you like a normal thick and chunky salsa there's no reason to add the water but if you want a true copy, add it.

Ok, so I have never eaten Baja Fresh salsa before so I can't compare it to that, but my review on it as a tasty salsa is about 21/2 stars. I'm not sure exactly what it was that I didn't like but, I know it wasn't spicy enough for me and I even added extra pepper. I also added lime juice to it so maybe that was my mistake. This is my first time making salsa, so maybe I screwed something up along the way. It was good, but I doubt I would try to make it again. I think I'll keep looking for a recipe that suits my taste better.

Made this last night with a few changes. Used 4 Jalopeno peppers (two without seeds), increased onion to 1/2 cup, and 2 cloves of garlic which I smashed and smeared with the salt. And 2 teaspoons lime juice. And finally NO water. The consistancy is perfect without it. I and my co-workers just loved it.

It is December 28, we have had about six inches of snow, and I just took the grilled tomatoes and peppers off the grill. I think the neighbor across the street that was shoveling thought I was crazy. But as I made it this past summer and canned about 20 jars of this stuff, its now all gone. Either eaten by me and my daughter (husband/son not fans) and given away as Christmas gifts, there was no way I was going to wait until summer to make this again. The only thing I do differently is omit the onions (don't like em) and added the juice of a half of a lime for each recipe. I LOVE THIS STUFF! I pour it over scrambled eggs, over pork dishes, you name it. THANKS FOR POSTING and sorry for waiting so long to rate it!
