Add More Spice: The spice level of this salsa is totally customizable! If you want a little more spice, try adding a serrano pepper in addition to your jalapeno. If you want even more spice, add a habanero pepper!
The More Char, the Better: Don’t be afraid of char marks on your veggies! This will make them more flavorful.
Chopping Cilantro: When chopping your fresh cilantro, I like to roll it up like a little burrito and then dice. This way, you have more uniform pieces.
Extra Flavors: You can never go wrong with a little citrus! Adding fresh lime juice is a great addition to the flavor of this salsa.
