The frugal gourmet's homemade salsa

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
4 cups Ripe tomatoes, cored and chopped
5 Jalapeno peppers, seeded, cored and chopped
2 mediums Yellow onions, peeled and chopped
½ Green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 cup Canned tomato sauce
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Minced or crushed garlic
2 tablespoons Chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
1½ tablespoon Red wine vinegar
Salsa jalapena (La Victoria brand is best) to taste (if desired)

Fresh salsa is surprisingly easy to make and so much better than supermarket sauce. It will keep several days in the refrigerator.

Do not cook. Simply mix all ingredients well and add salsa jalapena to taste. Careful, the stuff is HOT!! Store in the refrigerator, covered, in plastic. Use on salads, on top of fried or scrambled eggs, as a dip, etc.
