    Belinda in Austin, TX's Note:

    I asked for this recipe at a party 20 years ago, and I've been making it ever since! I always feel a little guilty when people ask for the recipe, because it's so easy!!! The addition of the cilantro makes it great, and fresh tasting. Don't use regular stewed tomatoes; it just won't taste nearly as good.

      This was GOOD!! So simple! I used 1 can of regular stewed tomatoes and 1 can of rotel, I didn't drain. I couldn't find the mexican stewed tomatoes. It was SO GOOD!! Thanks so much for an easy, yummy recipe that I will make over and over again.

      We live in Johannesburg, South Africa, and though available, salsa is fairly expensive. My daughter LOVES salsa, so I have been trying recipes from Zaar. This has been our favourite so far. My husband says "Old El Paso, move over. :) It is full of flavour, and has a wonderful, runny consistency, which we prefer over the really chunky. Thanks for a great recipe.

      I'm glad I waited a day to review because the flavor is much better the second day. The cilantro does make it taste very fresh and I also squeezed 1/4 of a lime into the salsa which gave it a nice bright flavor. Salsa in less than 5 minutes? It can be done!
