"I made this salsa. I increased the red onion and added 2 small cubed avocado's and doubled the sour cream/lime mixture. It was gobbled up in no time. I served it as a side with Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken. It is definitely something I will be making often. My family raved about it. Thank you Charlene for a wonderful recipe!"

"I made this salsa and it is soo good and adds a fresh cool hot yet spicy flavor to tacos, tostadas, sopes, and even over eggs and ham. I love it and so does all my family."
