Wow! I didn't know how easy it is to make your own salsa. I used 1 can of Hunt's fire roasted tomatoes and 1 can of their stewed tomatoes. I also used the seeds and the membrane of one jalapeno plus 1/2 of a seeded jalapeno for a little bit of heat. I also added about 1/4 tsp cumin per another reviewer's suggestion. I won't add quite so much cilantro next time because I don't like it! I might also add some lime zest to up the lime flavor. Overall, a wonderful recipe with room for personal modifications.
Better than restaurants! Like an earlier reviewer I used 4 cans of the Rotel diced tomato with chiles and drained 3 of them. Tastes so fresh and my family can't get enough. Be sure to use quality canned tomatoes. I made it with Hunts the first time and it smelled sulfuric. Not good.
The recipe doesn't specify what type of onion to use...and we discovered that you definitely do NOT want to use a red onion in the quantity the recipe specifies. I don't know if another type of onion might be better, but this was very overpowering. Yuck. At least it wasn't difficult to make.
