  • Yield: 2-3 cups 1x


Chunky fresh tomato salsa is sort of like the best homemade pico de gallo ever, made of Roma tomatoes, cilantro, onion, and peppers and perfect piled high on a chips or tacos!


  • 5 or 6 Roma tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped (around a 1/2 cup after chopping)
  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 Anaheim peppers, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno if you like a little heat, seeds removed and chopped
  • Juice of 1 to 2 limes
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • Lots of salt and pepper, about 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper


  1. Mix everything in a bowl.
  2. Adjust salt, pepper, and lime juice to taste.
  3. If you have a few hours, mix it together, and leave it on the counter top so the flavors will blend.
  4. Serve it with chips, in tacos, on top of enchiladas, or in your favorite salad.


  • Anaheim pepper are pretty mild with just a touch of heat. If you are super sensitive to spice, use a green bell pepper. And wear gloves when messing with that jalapeno!
  • This is so tasty with homemade baked corn tortilla chips if you have the time.
