I learned how to make this from one of my best friends.. It's always been a hit on parties she brings chips and her salsa.. everyone always asks "what is the secret?" and I finally got her to tell me.. though it's not a big deal.. what it is ..is that everyone that makes it adds a different flavor to it.. everyone makes it their own.. even if it's the same ingredients and measurements...
anyway here it is...
4 fresh jalapeno peppers more or less depending on your tolerance (or serrano peppers)
2 cloves of garlic
half a fresh cilantro (coriander) bunch
1 can of whole tomatoes
salt to taste
in a skillet or pan toast the jalapenos and the garlic until blackened a bit.
chop for a couple seconds and stop, chop for another couple seconds and stop again, you want the salsa to be chunky and not too blended.
and here is the final product enjoy with any Mexican dish or simply with chips! the easiest thing to bring to a party! ... also I like adding chopped scallions to mine as well if you like onions you can certainly add them! :)
