Step 2: Slice and Dice the Tomatoes

Step 4: Cut the Jalapenos

Cut the jalapenos into small squares as well. We used about 2-3 Jalapenos but again, it's what you like. Use as many or as little as you like. Just remember, the more Jalapenos you use the hotter it will be!

Step 5: *Optional* Removing the Center

For those who don't like the heat of the jalapeno but want the flavor you can remove the center of the pepper. The seeds and core is where most of the hotness of the jalapeno comes from. However, feel free to keep the core if you want to bring the heat!

Step 7: Add Your Chopped Cilantro and Onion

Next, add the chopped cilantro and onion into the bowl. Both add more flavor and the cilantro adds a little heat to the salsa. Use as much as you'd like. We used about a handful of each.

Step 8: Get Your Hands in There

Mix that bowl with your hands and stir up the ingredients. You can use a spoon if you want but let's be honest, its more fun to get the hands dirty! Stir until the ingredients are thoroughly mixed.
