Ingredients:  
10 large Roma tomatoes
1 large white onion
3 large garlic cloves
1 bunch cilantro
1 lemon
1 large jalapeno pepper
1 small can of salsa verde (the secret ingredient)
A few pinches to taste of pulverized Sea Salt
A pinch of granulated sugar (optional)

Directions:
Directions:
Prepare each of the above ingredients in the following way and place them in a non-reactive bowl (I prefer glass). I usually do them in this order, but like most destinations, how you get there doesn't matter once you've arrived.
Cut the tops off of the tomatoes where the stems were.Quarter the rest and then dice each quarter to 1/4 pieces. Dice the onion into 1/4 inch pieces. For the garlic, use a garlic press with a fine insert. Thoroughly wash the cilantro bunch, pluck off the leaves until you have about a one-cup-sized pile. Chop the pile into fine pieces. Halve and squeeze a lemon over the ingredients in the bowl. De-stem, quarter and de-seed the jalapeno pepper. Mince each quarter. Add one can of salsa verde. This can usually be found in your grocer's Mexican food section. Add a pinch of sea salt. I sometimes add sugar and sometimes I don't. It depends on something ambiguous like my mood or the phase of the moon. Mix, fold, and stir all the ingredients in the bowl with a non-reactive spoon (I prefer wooden). Once they are mixed thoroughly, and you have sampled your creation and are satisfied, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator for at least two hours to allow the ingredients to get to know each other. Give the mixture a good stir when you are ready to serve it with your favorite corn chips. I prefer crispy white corn tortilla chips.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This mixture can also be used in a variety of ways: on a hamburger, as a side dish like pico de gallo, on rice with black beans and sour cream. The salsa can also be pureed if you prefer it that way. The possibilities are endless.
