    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.

    have you ever canned this recipe? I made some last year from a recipe I found online and canned them in a hot water bath. My DH loved it. I made 12 jars of the salsa and this did not last all winter. Since our garden did nothing this year I will have to purchase tomatoes this year along with everything else.

    Thanks for posting this recipe, we both love Salsa!

    If you want a recipe for canning salsa,here is a good one.

    CHUNKY SALSA

    14 cups tomatoes, peeled, seeded and coarsely chopped
    3 cups chopped green peppers
    1/3 cup chopped jalapeno peppers
    2 cups chopped onions
    1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
    5 cloves garlic, minced
    1/2 cup cider vinegar
    1 tablespoon sugar
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon pepper

    Place chopped tomatoes in a large colander and let drain for 30 minutes. Place tomatoes in a large Dutch oven or kettle; bring to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 45 to 50 minutes, or until thickened, stirring frequently. Add peppers, onion, garlic, vinegar, sugar, salt, and pepper. Return mixture to boiling. Remove from heat. Ladle mixture into pint jars, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Adjust lids. Process in boiling water bath for 35 minutes. To freeze salsa, set kettle in a large sink of ice to cool quickly. When cool, spoon into freezer containers or bags. Freeze up to 6 minhths. Yield: 5 - 6 pints.

    Warning. Don't chop/touch hot peppers with bare hands. Wear plastic food service gloves.
    I know this though experience. The burning does go away eventually. :oops:

    How true this is!!! It never used to bother me to handle hot peppers especially if only chopping one but now it does and it will burn for hours. So glad you mentioned this!

    I bought jalapeno's at the grocery store and cut them up just like green peppers and they didn't burn my hands. I have some in my garden and if they ever get big enough to use, I may have a different tale to tell.

    Maybe some people are more sensitve than others. I've used them from my garden (when I was growing them) and from the store and they burn either way but never used to.
