This is the salsa recipe my husband brought back to me from a restaurant in Mexico City. I have tweaked it over the years to perfect the recipe to our our liking. I have discovered that hand-chopping the vegetables finely will produce the best texture and flavor. The flavor of this salsa will intensify over 24 hour period. If you like HOT leave recipe as is. If you enjoy a milder salsa, you might want to reduce the amount jalapenos.
