I don't use the seeds or gel from the tomatoes. I just cut the tomatoes up leaving the skin on and discard the seeds and gel. If making Pico de Gallo, the only liquid I add is lime juice. I also use pablano chilis with the Jalapeno, no seeds. If you want a spicier salsa, add some roasted, peeled, seeded and chopped Hatch chilis, starting with mild.
