Help please!

Can anyone share a really good salsa recipe pretty please? I just tried making one I found on the internet and it's total crap and I'm dying to find a good one. I don't know what it is lately but I'm craving Mexican food all.the.time. I've had tacos 3 times in the last week, restaurant nachos and now all I can think about is homemade salsa! So, seriously, pleeeeeease send me your recipes!:)

Salsa
3 big tomatoes diced
1 onion finely chopped
1 clove garlic finely chopped
1/2 lime's worth of juice (adjust to taste)
1/4 bunch of coriander finely chopped (including stalks, that's where the flavour is)
A few olives roughly chopped
Jalapeno finely chopped to taste
Salt to taste

Combine ingredients and let sit. It gets tastier with time as the flavours meld.

3-4 big tomatoes
1 onion
1-2 green chiles or jalapeƱos
a bunch of coriander (like a handful)
1 lime (juice)
salt & pepper

Grill the tomatoes, onion and chiles on the BBQ until blackened. Then put them in a plastic bag to make them sweat so you can remove the skin of the tomatoes and chiles.
Once you removed the skin, put everything in a blender or food processor, add the lime of the lime juice, the bunch of coriander and a little bit of water (not much).
When you blend it try to leave it chunky and depending on how thick it is you can add more water.
Add salt & pepper to taste.

And this recipe comes directly from a mexican!! (MOI!) =) ENJOY!!

I'm with anonymous. Any interest in drinking a root beer is better than a pregnancy test for me.

I was going to offer Rej's mum cooked salsa recipe (requires lots of cilantro), but I see you have a recipe from Mariana, so you are all set!

Last time I craved Mexican foods and couldn't get enough of it, I was preggers...
