    We have made this for years and it's a family favorite. Always gets rave reviews from guests too. Easy and full of flavor!

    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.

    Amazingly yummy. I used generic Rotel for the canned tomatoes, everything else was fresh from the farmer's market! Delicious. Goes well with TJ's Whole Grain Tortilla Chips!

    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.

    I have been making this recipe for years, only thing different is that I add a little cumin (maybe 1/2 teaspoon). Delicious, and all my friends think this is hard to do.

    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.

    Surprisingly good for such simple ingredients. I added a few dashes of habanero pepper sauce and some cumin. Other than that, I made it as written, and it turned out very tasty!
