    i really liked it. it definitely fulfilled its promise of being 'restaurant style'. very nostalgic. I omitted the jalapeno to make it more mild, and forgot to add sugar. I probably would leave the sugar out next time too, as this recipe doesnt need it (plenty of natural sugar in the tomatoes).

    Super yummy. I doubled the recipe because I had a bunch of home grown tomatoes I wanted to use. made wayyyy too much salsa, haha. I also added a little more jalepeno so it's more on the spicy side. Will definitely use this recipe from now on.

    Made this for Cinco de Mayo and it was amazing! Used a blender and was really simple and cheap to make. The whole family loved it. Never buying jared salsa again.

    I added some tomato paste and then heated it up to boil so it keeps longer. Besides, it is much cheaper to make here in Indonesia than buying.

    Beautiful salsa! However, I grew up on my teen and young adult years in SoCal with trips to Mexico and have been making fresh salsa for years. Never once did I have a true Mexican salsa with cumin or chili powder in it. Those ingredients belong in Chili and beans. So for me, they stay out of my salsa! To each his own! Ole’! 🤷🏼‍♀️

    delicious! very flavorful! i added a 1/2 tsp of cumin to it and blended it in the ninja bullet cuz i like my salsa more runny and less chunky.

    This was a GREAT base for starting the salsa of your choice. I love a TEXMEX KICKIN’ kinda sauce, so I added 1/3 white onion, 1- Serrano pepper, 10 oz can of Rotel Mild, more salt, pepper, cumin, chili powder and Ancho Chile Pepper . Great recipe!

    Wow! Definitely easy although I had to use a blender as I don’t have a food processor. Excellent flavor before it even marinates for a day! Just like the restaurant.

    I think this is a good recipe to start making your own salsa. However, I think there needs to white onion and more of it. Two jalapeños with seeds and more cilantro. If you like a blander salsa, this recipe is good as written. I like mine more traditional to real Mexican food. I’m glad I found it though.

    Great! I added 4 Roma tomatoes and a can of tamato paste. Added only can of diced tomatoes. Sauted one large red onion before grinding. Added 3 jalepaoes, Finally added some wild garlic and sea salt. Turned out amazing!!
    I made this salsa and brought it to a dinner party. Everyone loved it! I’m making it again today for my family to snack on

    pretty good although a bit too hot for my taste, also I wanted to know if it is possible to cook this salsa later on?

    This was great! Great flavor and just the right amount of spice. I actually left half the seeds from the jalapeño in there for perfection. I will certainly be making more once this batch is gone.

    This was a pretty good salsa. I found that adding an extra jalapeño and more salt helped. I also should have used fresh lime. I will make it again.
