You will need:

2.5 pounds fresh tomatoes (use heirloom tomatoes for best results)
3 jalapenos
1 red onion
1 lime
1/2 bunch cilantro
3-4 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon salt
1 avocado
Corn chips to serve

1. Peel and deseed (optional) the tomatoes.

2. Wash the jalapenos, cutting off the tops; cut in half and deseed (or you can leave the seeds in, depending on how hot you want your salsa).

3. Rinse the cilantro and chop off the stems. (It's okay if you leave some stems as long as you get most of them off.)
