I did fairly a little bit of experimenting for this 10-minute, Eight-ingredient, 1- bowl recipe.

Not fairly.

While you may go that route, I discover that it yields a watery, flavorless salsa, and I’m clearly not down for that. So, as an alternative, I examined a number of canned-tomato varieties as a base and located fire-roasted tomatoes to be the perfect match!

They’re extraordinarily smoky and complicated, and so they add a wealthy tomato taste to this salsa. Supporting components like onion, cilantro, lime, garlic, and jalapeño or serrano pepper around the flavors out to yield the right pink salsa.
