Homemade salsa is so much better than store-bought and is quick and easy to make.
Whether serving it as a side, garnish or a stand-alone chip dip, chunky salsa is a winner.
Chop the tomatoes, jalapeño, onion, and cilantro finely.
Some people prefer to remove the seeds from the jalapeños, however I enjoy the extra crunch and heat they add.
Mix all ingredients well and sprinkle with salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, and sugar.
I know that seems a little odd for a dish that is supposed to be spicy, but it makes the flavours pop!
Zest 1/4 of a lime and squeeze the lime juice over the salsa.
1 large roma tomato
1/4 red onion
1 large jalapeño
1 bunch of cilantro
1/4 lime zest
1/4 lime juice
1/4 teaspoon sugar
Finely chop all vegetables and combine.
Zest 1/4 lime, then squeeze the juice into the salsa.
Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and cayenne to taste.
Add sugar and mix well.
