What Tomatoes to Use for Restaurant Style Salsa

I used fire-roasted diced tomatoes because I love the flavor it adds.

You can also use fresh tomatoes, regular diced tomatoes or whole tomatoes with juice.

If you add tomatoes without flavor, I would suggest also add a can of Rotel in to help give it more spice and flavor.
