The Super Bowl is right around the corner and now would be a good time to start planning your party menu. You can't go wrong with salsa and chips, but take it up a notch this year with homemade salsa. It tastes so much better than what you buy from the grocery and you get to control how spicy it is.

  • 4 plum tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, minced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • zest and juice from a lime
  • salt and pepper to taste

In a bowl, combine all ingredients. Cover and refrigerate overnight to allow flavors to fully develop. Serve with tortilla chips.

Cook's Notes-this recipe is easily adapted to your individual tastes. If you want a hotter salsa, use a hotter pepper or more jalapeno. If you like it milder, use less pepper and more tomato.
