"People used to travel miles and miles just to get salsa and chips to go from Don Emilio's Restaurant in Larchmont, NY. No matter how hard anyone tried, there was no getting the recipe. Then one day at a party in work, a Columbian girl brought in salsa that her husband had made...and it was identical to Don Emilio's. Aaaahhhhh....amazing salsa whenever you want it. And you'll want it often. And you thought chocolate was addictive???? (Check out my guacamole recipe, too)"

"Muy, MUY bien!! Despite the fact that tomatoes aren't in season and I had to use all canned, this was just bursting with fresh flavor! The steeping definitely makes a difference. My children have very adverse reactions to cilantro, so I substituted oregano with excellent results. Thanks for a wonderful recipe! "
"Yum! I didn't have any crushed tomatoes, so I used a 14.5oz can of petite diced tomatoes with green chilies. I used 2 jalapenos (1 red and 1 green), a banana pepper, a tomato and fresh parsley and basil all from my garden. Although I didn't quite follow the recipe, I give it 5 stars anyway for helping me make my own salsa."
"I love good restaurant style salsa and HATE the storebought stuff! This is delicious, restaurant quality, and so much better and cheaper than any storebought brand. I make this for partys all the time...there's never any left and I get lots of requests for the recipe. THANKS!"
"I used this recipe for canning salsa last summer and will again this summer. Even after several months in a jar, this salsa was wonderful and got rave reviews."
"This was fabulous! Theres no need to buy salsa in a jar anymore. My only regret was that I only made half the recipe and it was all gone in one sitting. Thank you!"
"I made this for a cocktail party and people raved. Restaurant quality and so easy to make. I used a 15 oz can of petite diced tomatoes (drained) rather than the fresh and used canned jalapenos. Even DH liked this and he doesn't like cilantro, but it wasn't too cilanto-y. Made it the night b4 I needed it, which I recommend. This made a BIG batch (I guess also 'cause I used the canned diced tomatoes) but I am not worried. This is a great recipe, not much harder than opening a jar of the store bought but so much better, I'll make it often. Thanks!"
"Absolutely first class!! I used diced canned tomatoes and it worked fine. The food processor took care of the onion, jalapeno and some garlic I used. A great simple salsa. So glad this was posted. Thanks DeSouter"
"This is so wonderful, I wish I could give it more stars. I had to give my whole family the recipe. Even my 5 year old loves it...I just make his share "mild". This recipe makes a lot. (Much to my delight!!)Thanks so much. "
