3 medium tomatoes, peeled and finely chopped
1 - 4 oz. can diced green chili peppers drained (I use a jalepeno instead, just my preference)
ľ cup sliced green onion or regular onion
1 clove garlic, minced
ľ cup chopped green pepper
Juice of 1 lime or 2 tablespoons vinegar (I always use a lime)
1 or 2 tablespoons snipped cilantro or parsley
Salt and pepper to taste
Ĺ cup tomato sauce
Place all ingredients except for the tomato sauce into a medium mixing bowl stir.
Take out 1 cup of the tomato mixture and place in a blender or food processor. Then add tomato sauce, cover and blend or process just till pureed. Stir into remaining tomato mixture. Cover and chil for several hours or overnight, stirring occasionally.
Store, tightly covered, in the fridge for up to 3 days. Use as a dip for chips or as a topper for main dishes. Makes about 3 1/3 cups sauce.
