Homemade Salsa Recipe

I received my Vita-Mix in the mail and was inspired to make homemade salsa from the cook book they sent with it. But I had already put the kiddies to bed and didn't want to wake them so I sharpened up my knives and made this salsa the old fashioned way--by hand. It was pretty tasty. I didn't use a recipe so I wanted to post how I made it before it gets lost in the shuffle of my way to busy life. I served the salsa with rice and shrimp which I sauteed with garlic.

2 tomatoes-chopped finely
3/4 bunch of cilantro-chopped finely
2 T. onion--chopped finely
1 clove of garlic--well you get the idea...chopped finely
1/2-1 tsp salt
1/4 jalepeno--finely chopped
4 splashes of tabasco

Chop all ingredients finely. Mix together. Season to taste. Serve. Eat. Enjoy.
