  1. Quick and easy salsa. Mine was a little runny, but you can never tell with canned tomatoes. I can't wait to try this the next day....think it will be even better.

  2. This was quick and easy to prepare...the hubby enjoyed it on his burritos for lunch today...along with a side of chips to dip in it...made for your week #11 football win...congrats...
  3. We absolutely love this salsa -- so easy to make and so flavorful. Definitely my go-to recipe for a quick, authenic-tasting salsa.
  4. For using canned tomatoes this had wonderful flavor and it gets better with time! This is nice in the winter when fresh tomatoes aren't available. I used nacho slices instead of the jalapenos. A double batch makes 1 quart. Thanks for posting!
  5. This was quite good. I used fire roasted tomatoes, shallots, double the cilantro, one huge jalapeno and added 1/4 teaspoon of salt. This recipe makes a ton, so plan for a crowd!


  1. Bayhill this is very good salsa! I used green onions and parsley instead of cilantro. Added a little more garlic and a small jalapeno pepper without the seeds. Very easy and quick to make, love it!
