Notes

This is the original recipe, which I only use as a reference now. It’s the best salsa ever! I've been making this salsa for a long time and don't use a recipe anymore. I use all of the above ingredients and eyeball them depending on how big of a batch I'm making. The only addition to the recipe is the one can of rinsed corn I add to the mixture. If you make the original recipe you might want to only add half a can. I also think it tastes much better when you make it the day before. Adjust the seasoning before eating. Since this salsa is super fresh, it doesn't last very long -3 days is about the max.

It's so easy to make!!!! Yet my taste buds are just amazed at how well all the ingredients compliment each other!!!! My wife just loved it, and the little ones, well they're just happy I'm not making them eat the salsa with jalapenos anymore!!!

Sounds delish! I'm in!

Wow! I can't wait to make this salsa. I've been looking for a recipe like this for YEARS

That sounds amazing! I hope to try it soon!!

Dang that sounds tasty! I'll have to give it a try.
