I got this recipe from a neighbor who is Hispanic. His mom taught him how to make it. It's the only kind I like now.

Ingredients

  • 6
    tomatoes (i use roma, but any kind will work)
  • 1
    large onion
  • 1 bunch
    cilantro, fresh
  • 1-7
    jalapenos (depending on how spicy you want it)
  • 2-3
    limes (less if you have a lemon/lime juicer)
  • 1 Tbsp
    salt (add more if desired)
  • 2 tsp
    black pepper (add more if desired)

How to Make Salsa (The authentic and AMAZING kind)

Step-by-Step

  1. Roll each lime on the counter, pushing really hard with the palm of your hand, until they become soft. Cut in half and squeeze into BIG bowl.
  2. Cut tomatoes*, onion, and jalapeno** in a small dice. Add to big bowl.

    * if you don't have a sharp knife do your best to make the dicing small.

    ** I only seed 1/2 the jalapeno. But if you don't want it really spicy, I would seed the whole thing.
  3. Take the bunch of cilantro (rinsed really well) and roll the leafy part into a ball. Make very tiny cuts until the whole ball has been completely cut. Then cut the stems into tiny pieces. The stems hold a lot of flavor. Then add it to the BIG bowl.
  4. Mix everything, in the bowl, together. Then add the salt and pepper. Taste it without a chip. Chips have extra salt and you may think it's good because of the salty chip.

    Add more salt or pepper, until flavored to your likeness.

    Enjoy!
