For this batch of salsa I used 3 tomatoes, 1/4 of the onion, handful of cilantro, 2 1/2 jalapeños, 2 lemons, and 3/4 of a lime.

Cut the tomatoes in little cubes. You want all of your ingredients to be about the same size.

Cut and add the onion. Mix it up to see what your tomato : onion ratio is.

Add the jalapeño. Mix it up. At the point I like to taste the salsa to see how hot the jalapeños are. If they're super hot I usually add more tomatoes. If they're not spicy at all I usually add more.

Add the lemon juice. Careful not to get any seeds in the salsa. If you do, just take them out with a spoon.

Doesn't it look pretty?!? Enjoy with tortilla chips for a snack. Goes great with Carne Asada or grilled chicken.
