"This recipe is bursting with flavor! It is fresh and spicy, and did I mention easy? This is the closest thing to restaurant style salsa you will find. The jalapenos and hot pepper sauce (e.g., Tabasco) add spice to the mix and the cilantro, lime juice, and green onions create freshness."

This is one of the best salsa recipes I've tried. If you follow the recipe as is it's spicy. If you use one jalapeno and one Tbsp. hot sauce it's medium. If you omit the jalapeno and hot sauc...

This is fabulous salsa. I like a medium consistency salsa so I pureed half the veggies and diced the other half so I had some chunks still in it. The half of the tomatoes I diced I also draine...

This recipe is amazing. Some advice: If you have the time, pulse the tomatoes and chop other ingredients by hand. Also, let the tomatoes sit in fridge for an hour before adding other ingredien...

I did like this recipe but I made some changes. I don't like the skin on the tomatoes so I blanched them to remove the skin. I used 2 very large tomatoes & 1/2 red onion, 1 Tbsp of lime juice,...

I give this a 5 stars rating. It is exceptionally delicious. I did use chopped garlic instead of powder. The salsa was very juicy, which could have been corrected by draining the tomatoes for a ...

This should be called Jen's Fresh HOT and Spicy Salsa. My Husband loved it, but we both love HOT Spicy Salsa. I do agree with a few of the other reviews, I would drain the tomatoes before mixi...

This is pretty tastey! I used the recipe as a basic guideline, using probably about 10 or so smaller/medium romas, a small white onion, about 1 1 /2 peppers, just a bit of dried cilantro, lemon...
