The Best Fresh Tomato Salsa

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
Very easy to make and I have made this recipe several times, but I do have a couple of comments to make with respect to a handful of other reviews. I do use my food processor for the tomatoes, but I highly recommend not using it for the onion or jalepenos. It's nice to have a bit of substance to your salsa rather than all liquid. I have made this salsa with and without cilantro depending if I had it or not and it is much, much better with the cilantro. It is not an ingredient that should be left out. In my view and those of most others who have tried the salsa I've made, two medium sized fresh jalepenos are either not enough or just right. I've doubled it before and it gets to the point of just barely breaking a forehead sweat while eating it, which is what I like my spicy foods to do.

Sweet and Spicy Stir Fry with Chicken and Broccoli

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
Very easy and very good. I changed it slightly due to not having chili paste and wanting more vegetables. I added two stalks of celery and half a cup of pre-cut carrot sticks for more substance. To replace the chili paste, I diced two medium sized jalepenos. Because I added a couple other ingredients, I increased the amount of soy and hoisin sauces to one and a half tablespoons while adding one quarter cup chicken broth instead of chicken stock. This will become a staple in my diet as it was very tasty with the right amount of sweet and spice and easy to cook.
