I am currently visiting relatives in the Philippines, so I had to make some substitutions since you can't find certain things here. I used *canned* jalapenos, some random "green pepper sauce" rather than the Tabasco-esque pepper sauce I'm guessing the recipe meant for us to use (had to use a lot more than 3 drops as a result), and the same proportion of diced tomatoes but without green chiles (added some chopped bell pepper to make up for it). When completed as written, the salsa does seem to be "missing something", but it is actually a plus because, as the description states, you can add to taste. I added a few dashes of salt, and a bit extra lemon juice, cilantro, and onion. Finally, I accidentally dumped in a good amount of the liquid the jalapenos were floating in (haha). But hey, it turned out exactly how I like salsa :) My whole family loves it!
