Fresh salsa, without jalapeno hands

I love fresh salsa! I don't know many people who don't. It is so much better then the canned stuff. The only problem with making fresh salsa is cutting the jalapenos. Those oils stay on your hands forever. God forbid you touch your eyes anytime that week. Or any where else for that matter.
Anyway, I have found a solution to my fresh salsa problem. Tastefully Simple! They have this wonderful Simply Salsa mix. All you need is a can of diced tomatoes and a 1/4 cup of this mix. Throw both items in a bowl and set in the fridge for at least an hour. Voila! Fresh salsa, and you didn't even have to peel an onion.

If you ever get fresh jalapeno on your hands, soaking them in milk totally helps! My neighbor got some really hot ones and her hands were burning, so I had her soak them in a bowl of milk to calm the trick...
