There are a lot of reviews out there that aren’t very helpful. Hopefully, this helps. You have this recipe because you want to make Chili’s salsa specifically. With 2 modifications, this is the absolute closest thing to actually ordering from Chili’s. Its so close that I don’t find myself wanting to head to Chili’s to get salsa...and end up spending $30+ for my wife and I because I want salsa. Add a tsp to tsp and a half of sugar. I ended up adding sugar to taste as my jalapeños changed the flavor at the end of the bite. This brings up the second change. Maybe try 2 tablespoons of jalapeños. 3 makes the salsa hotter and changes the flavor node at the end. If you like hotter, then by all means go for it. You will need sugar to balance it though if you are looking for Chili’s salsa and not just a good tasting salsa. I’m very happy with this recipe and how easy it is to make. LET IT SIT OVERNIGHT for the flavor to really kick in. I made this the night before just for this reason. It is in the directions for a reason.

I make homemade salsa all the time similar to the ingredients used, but I use canned mexican tomatoes and I add fresh cilantro. I get tons of compliments :)

Use fresh tomatoes instead of canned-I find it as close to Chili's as possible. Two thumbs up.

Really good, but missing Chilli's secret ingredient, PICKLE JUICE! That's all I taste when I eat their salsa, and confirmed the ingredient with an employee.

By far the best bang for your buck in salsaville. Tastes marginal right after you make it, but really morphs overnight to a good salsa. My only add was a tsp of sugar.

Salsa is perfect. I found some really thin tortilla chips like the ones at Chili's called Xochitl.

I found using a real jalepeno chopped up and no onion and a TBSP of cumin, we hit it right on. We couldn't figure out the spice, til we asked a person that worked there. It's the cumin that makes the difference.
