  • You can also substitute the tomato for a mango & it makes WONDERFUL mango salsa (great on enchiladas)

    You can also add a lil cumin, of you like

    Sorry for posting 100!

  • I do the same as the PP but sometimes DH wants me to add crap meat, I also eyeball everything and the cilantro is better if it is minced really well.

    I throw all of mine in a food processor soemtimes and it comes out really nicely.
