My mother loved salsa. Not just any salsa, her salsa. She made it frequently. Even when her health turned, she still made salsa. When she couldn't make it any more, she stood over me instructing to make sure I did it right. This is her recipe.
Gather up your ingredients and simply chop them.
Start with two cups of diced tomatoes. Mom always mixed yellow and red tomatoes. The yellow variety has less acidity then red.
Add one bell pepper, any color.
One medium yellow onion.
One jalapeno seeded for less heat or chopped whole for a spicy version.
Three cloves of garlic.
Finally the juice of a lime. For a little more like flavor, you can also add the zest.
Stir it all together, heat some chips and enjoy.
