Expert Tips

You’ll need 1 large red onion and 1 bunch of cilantro to get the right cup amounts to make all 3 salsas.

For more flavor, add 1 chopped garlic clove in either the traditional or avocado salsa. The mango salsa does better without the garlic.

Jalapeños get most of their spicy kick from their seeds. Include as many seeds as you want for more heat.

When choosing an avocado for this recipe, select one that’s ripe, but still firm and not soft.
