You can make it hotter by adding more jalapeno peppers and you can also add some hot sauce.
Another variation is to add some canned black beans or corn . . or both.
I'm giving you the half recipe which is just about perfect for a party.
4 cups diced fresh Roma Tomatoes . .(one package at Costco)
2 cups diced green peppers . .(I mix them up a bit with orange and yellow)
1 cup of finely chopped white onion
1/2 cup diced red bell pepper (I just do a whole one here)
2 jalapeno peppers finely chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
Mix together . . .
1 cup vinegar
1 can of tomato paste (I use the garlic added or herb added)
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon cumin
a small handful of fresh chopped cilantro. (according to your taste)
That's it. It takes a bit of time to chop it all up but then it keeps in the refrigerator for a week at least. If you can't use it all up, just freeze it in small bags and use it in recipes.
On the weekend, we grilled quesadillas and served this salsa and some guacamole with it.
A perfect summer evening casual dinner idea.
It's pouring cats and dogs here today. Yuck. Yesterday, I looked outside just before lunch to see that Indee had complelty unpotted one of my pots. Just as the flowers were beginning to fill out, they are back to square one. Oh Indee.
Have a wonderful day my friends.
