I eliminated the cooking step by using stewed tomatoes in a can. I also used jalapeno instead of serrano peppers. Topped with the juice from 1 lime.

Too much cilantro....this should have 1/4 C. Cilantro at the most! Way too strong.

This salsa was good, but it much more resembled pico de gallo then salsa (only much more finely chopped than pico usually is). It was still good, very simple and fresh, but after the inital tasting I did add lime, and my husband and I thought it was much better with the lime added.

A very fresh-tasting salsa. It lasted for quite a few days in the refrigerator, too!

A wonderful and versatile salsa. This recipe is a crowd pleaser.

A little too hot and not chunky enough

OK, but I prefer salsa cruda rather than cooked salsas.

OK, fresh flavor and looks like real salsa. But it's missing something.
