Big Game Salsa

This salsa recipe from Tequila Herradura is quick and easy and is perfect for Super Bowl parties. It includes just enough tequila for extra flavor, but not too much to where you'll be drunk by the time the bowl's gone. I would suggest using blanco tequila, but I also tried it with a reposado, which added a rich agave flavor to the mix.

Anyone can make this salsa, even if you have minimal experience in the kitchen; just chop and mix. If there are children around, make a non-alcoholic version by foregoing the tequila and be sure to clearly mark each salsa so there's no confusion.
