    Sounds good. Maybe substitute the jalopenos for some habaneros or scotch bonnets /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    I'm not into too much heat anymore, but it wouldn't hurt it thats for sure, we've made it 3 times everytime different and I don't think you can screw this stuff up... /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    The heat all depends on how fine the pepper is chopped. I put whole scotch bonnets in soups and stews all the time and it just gives it a good flavor or I slice them in half and it gives the heat of a chopped up jalapeno.

    Swap the onion for 4-5 green onions finely chopped, I bet it would be even better. Also add about a teaspoon of crushed garlic. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif My current salsa recipe is

    6 tomatoes
    6 green onions
    cilantro (to taste, about 1/4 cup after major chopping is normal)
    1 tbsp crushed garlic
    3-4 jalapenos
    salt to taste

    I chop everything real fine and drain the tomatoes after chopping so the end result isn't too watery. I might throw in a couple mangoes next time to see how it turns out... /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
