Doug makes the salsa so if you have any questions, ask him!

Canned diced tomatoes with mild green chilis, or canned fire roasted tomatoes also work great as well.

For a slightly stronger onion flavor, you can just omit green onions and use about 3/4 cup red onion (1/2 of a medium onion).

Sometimes I like to substitute a few canned chipotle peppers with some adobo sauce for the jalapeño. This is a spicier option.

For thinner salsa, you can add in a bit of tomato juice or tomato sauce if desired. We have never done this as salsa is pretty thin as is.
