Original recipe yields 4 cups



  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.

This is a great recipe for Fresh Salsa! I cut way back on the onion and garlic, doubled the lime juice, and threw in half of a chopped cucumber. This is heavenly on bean tacos! I like to supplement the spiciness with bottled hot taco sauce.



This is the quintissential salsa recipe. The cool tomatoes contrast nicely against the spicy jalapenos and pungent onion, and the lime juice and salt round out the flavors nicely. Let it sit overnight to really let the flavor develop.



I went to a party last week and a friend of mine brought a dip similar to this one, and after trying it I had to make it. I came here and found this recipe. It has been a week and I've made this dip twice! I must admit that they weren't the same recipe, this one is actually better! The garlic and jalapenos give it quite the kick, and my family is in love with Cilantro, so this is the perfect recipe!
