chunky tomato salsa

Don't you love fresh tomato salsa with your tortilla scoops...scoop full of spicy tangy flavor..yummmm, i love it...get a nice book, slouch on your couch with a bag of chips n a bowl of salsa, oh,my! what more you can ask for :)

We at home love spicy food...So though, most of the time we are contented with the "hot" store bought salsa to go with our chips, when time permits, we do enjoy the home made version of it, which is ever more spicier n fresh...always satisfying our taste palates :)

Very easy to put together, needing no special ingredient other than the regular ones you have in your veggie cripser.

You'll need:

Tomatoes: 3 nos (medium sized, finely diced)
Onion: 1 (medium sized, finely chopped)
Jalapeno chili pepper: 2-3 (ribs and seeds removed, nicely chopped) **
juice of one lime
Cliantro: 1/2 cup( nicely chopped)
Salt: as per required
Ground Cumin : a pinch (optional)

** You can spice it up or down by varying the no of chilies used.

How to make:

In a bowl mix together chopped tomato,onion and pepper.Add the lime juice, salt, chopped cilantro and  ground cumin.
Let sit  for an hour for the flavors to combine before you enjoy it with your chips :)

P.S: My hubby's make it more yummier tip- warm up the tortilla chips sprinkled with some cheese on it for a couple of min in the oven and then devour them with the salsa...hmmmm...i guess we are born to eat ;)
