    1. In a small mixing bowl, combine tomatoes, onion, garlic, coriander and lime juice. Add the finely chopped chilli, 2 teaspoons at a time, tasting after each addition to see how hot the salsa has become. Salt to taste. Enjoy!


    This is a great base recipe. You can use any chilli you like. You could also add chick peas for a heartier salsa. Serve as a dip with crisps, or a sauce to go over fish or chicken.

    This was simple & tasted great. Thanks  -  08 Mar 2010


    As written I would have to give this a four but I added some stuff that I thought brought it up to 5*s. I used 7 roma tomatos (pureed 2 of them), used a whole vidila onion, added 1 c. of corn & 1 c. of black beans (drained & rinsed), I didn't seed the jalapeno & I also added one habanero (I did seed it). At the end, hubby & I argued as to whether it needed a bit of sugar or vinegar, I won the arguement & we added 1 tbp. plus 1 tsp. of white wine vinegar... this really helped bind the flavors together & strangely enough, seemed to add the bit of sweetness my hubby thought it needed. I think we may have just made the best salsa ever!  -  17 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is quick, easy and delicious! Hint though. After chopping the tomatoes, I drain them in a collander for a while to eliminate some of the excess liquid.  -  06 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
