This is an easy and simple way to make your own salsa. This recipe makes enough to serve several people. Salsa is easy and you can always modify this recipe to make is as hot as you want or mild as you want. You can substitute garlic cloves with powder as well as the onions if you prefer. I suggest using the same size can of Rotel as you do the petite diced tomatoes...
Good stuff : )
