Six Fresh Salsas and Guacamole

I lived in Texas for almost 10 years and when I left I learned that the fresh tomato salsa I got in every local Tex-Mex restaurant was a luxury that I could not live without. I set out to create not only a good basic salsa that I could whip up anytime but also fun variations that would keep the my fresh salsa tasting new and different whenever I made it. Plus the best benefit is once you have fresh salsa all you need is a few ripe avocados and you have instant simple guac. Making salsa is about portions and tasting as you go. If it looks like it has too many onions add another tomatoes, if it tastes flat kick it up with some garlic, salt, or lime. Trust your eyes and pallet to know what you need to adjust, guacamole works the same way, just sample as you go and you will know when its perfect.
