This salsa is soooo good! I did cut the recipe back quite a bit since it's just the two of us and omitted the cilantro since it's not our favorite herb. The salsa was spicy and delicious and I can't wait to make it again!

I adjust the spices a bit because I don't like it quite so spicy but everyone raves about this salsa when I make it!

Best salsa recipe! It is well worth the time to make this. We enjoy it equally well on breakfast omelets.

Loved this - it was easy and came out delicious. I left out the chili powder and cut the jalapenos based on my family's tastes. Also didn't have green onions so used a sweet onion.
