just an fyi, there are no such things as seedless tomatoes.

there are some new hybrids that have relatively few seeds, but are not completely seedless.

i cut and squeeze out the seeds and mucilage much like andy described, but i don't get too crazy trying to remove every single bit. a coupla seeds won't be noticed in most dishes.

I'm going to ignore the seedless tomatoes at the grocery store from now on! My quest is to make a taco that stays together. I usually spread refried beans on a soft shell or put a scoop of sour cream in a hard shell then fill it. I think seeding and cleaning the pulp from the tomatoes might be an improvement.

Look for Roma or plum tomatos.
