I'll pass on the tomato water with pulp. I make Pico when we have something it goes well with. I also like to experiment with different salsas, including the use of ghost peppers and habaneros (Xni Pec).

I chop up the whole tomato, haven't ever thought the skins or seeds are bitter.

Same here. I prefer the taste & texture of using the whole tomato. If anyone prefers to skin/seed the tomato, feel free. The recipe was designed to be flexible to taste.

A food processor or handy chopper make very quick and easy work, although I used to make it before I had either of those tools.
