In a medium-size bowl, combine tomatoes, onion, cilantro,
garlic, lime juice, tomatillo, and salt to taste.
Add 1/2 of the jalapeno pepper, and taste..
Yes taste, This is going to be a milder friendlier salsa, remember?
If you want to "kick it up a notch" as Emerald says, simply add the remaining 1/2 jalapeno.

Then Stop, do not add the remaining jalapeno pepper.
Cover the salsa, and chill until ready to serve with warm tortilla chips.
