This is a very easy recipe that always gets rave reviews and many recipe requests. A co-worker who is from Mexico shared it with me. I only use about one inch of the jalapeno, because I like my salsa with a kick, not a flaming punch. It's very quick to prepare, and can be served immediately. I like to make it at least an hour before serving, so the flavors can marry. The key ingredient is the El Pato Tomato Sauce® (yellow can), that can be found in the ethnic section of your supermarket. You may have to go to a Mexican market if you can't find it at your usual supermarket. Serve with tortilla chips. Leftovers are great the next day, too!

This is an easy and tasty salsa. Here is a tip to remove the cilantro leaves from the stems. Wash the cilantro and then hold the stem end of the bunch in one hand and 'rake' the bunch with a fork. Most of the leaves will be removed leaving you holding just the stems. Enjoy!
