Prep time: 10-15 minutes

2 Cups fresh diced tomatoes, approximately a pound

1 small red onion

1 clove garlic, minced

1/3 chopped cilantro leaves

1 to 2 jalapenos, finely diced (use 2 for more heat)

The juice and zest of 1 fresh lime

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Mix all ingredients together and refrigerate.  Allow to chill 2 hours before serving with your favorite tortilla chips. I prefer using a combination of blue and yellow corn chips for color contrast.  Also, you can serve with guacamole, limes and sour cream to create this festive game day platter (pictured above).
