This is the best salsa I have ever tasted. I got it off of a cooking show on PBS a while back.

2 cups toamtoes (diced)
1 cup chopped onion
couple of "branches" of fresh cilantro (finely chopped)
1 Tbsp Lemon juice
1 fresh jalepeno pepper
2 cloves garlic
3 Tbsp Ketchup (give or take)

Combine diced tomatoes, chopped onion, cilantro and lemon juice in a dish. (I sometimes place half of the tomatoes in a blender so that the salsa is not as chunky) Take the jalepeno pepper and cut it into four parts length-wise. Remove all of the seeds, and cut one strip in half (so it is one-eighth). Chop the 1/8 pepper VERY FINE, and add it to the dish. Crush the garlic just enough to remove the skin, then chop the garlic. Add it to the dish. Add Ketchup to increase thickness of salsa.

If you like it really hot, you can try adding more jalepeno pepper, or even get some habanero pepper.

Note: You may want to wear rubber gloves when handling the jalepeno pepper. The juice does not wash off your hands. Everything you touch will BURN LIKE FIRE! I had a rather unpleasant experience going to the bathroom after making this recipe. It still brings back painful memories.
Truth is only as reliable as its source.
Stay safe.
