  1. In a medium-size mixing bowl, combine tomatoes, onion, cilantro, garlic, lime juice, tomatillo, and salt to taste. Mix well. Add 1/2 of the jalapeno pepper, and taste. If you desire your salsa with more of a kick, add the remaining 1/2 jalapeno. If you are satisfied with the salsa's heat, do not add the remaining jalapeno pepper. Cover the salsa, and chill until ready to serve.

My whole family loved this recipe. It was so easy, and only took minutes

I didn't realize how simple it is to make salsa! I followed the recipe exactly (with the exception of the tomatillo because I didn't have one). It is so good! Even before I gave the ingredient...

This is the recipe I was searching for! It turned out great. I ended up using the entire pepper as I thought the heat needed to be turned up.
