Mexican fare only gets better when topped with Anna Yeatts' colorful Fresh Salsa. The Pinehurst, North Carolina cook uses ripe tomatoes, crisp onion and a touch of minced serrano pepper, making it just as good as a side dish or appetizer with crunchy baked tortilla chips!

Ingredients

  • 4 plum tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 serrano pepper, seeded and minced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Baked tortilla chip scoops

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the first eight ingredients. Cover and refrigerate until serving. Serve with chips.
Editor's Note
Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
