Pro Tips

If you prefer chunkier salsa, you can just dice the ingredients to your desired sizes. If you prefer less chunky, add all the ingredients to the bowl of a food processor, stand mixer, hand-held immersion blender, or Magic Bullet blender, and pulse a few quick times, or until your desired consistency.

For mild salsa remove and discard the seeds from the jalapeno. Leave them in if you like it spicy.
