Fresh Tomato Salsa

Here's a fresh tomato salsa recipe that is very forgiving and adaptable. I made this salsa not spicy so my mother-in-law could enjoy it. But if you want it hot, feel free to adjust the serrano peppers to your taste or you can leave the seeds in (the seeds and veins in peppers contains most of the capsaicin, the compound that lend peppers their mouth-searing qualities).

2 serrano peppers, seeded, minced 
6 large tomatoes, seeded and diced
1/3 cup minced onion
1/4 cup chopped cilantro (add more if needed)
3 large jalapeno peppers, seeded, minced
1/2 teaspoon cumin
2 cloves garlic
juice of one lime
salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients together. Serve.
