Prep time: 5 minutes

Yield: About ½ cup

That tasty condiment you find on your tacos and served with chips at the local Mexican joint? It’s way easier to make than you think. Just a few bright and flavorful summer tomatoes and jalapeños, and you’re halfway there.


  • 1 medium tomato
  • ¼ medium white onion
  • ½ medium jalapeño pepper
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Salt to taste


  • Chop the tomato, onion, pepper and cilantro as finely as you can. (In Mexico they use a mortar and pestle to grind their salsas). Squeeze in lime, and add salt to taste. Enjoy with tacos, tortilla chips or burritos.
