Homemade Salsa

Salsa is one of my absolute favorite things, I absolutely love it.  I could eat salso pretty much any time and that is my mean when we go eat Mexican.  I really don't think that fresh, homemade salsa can be beat though.  Summer time is awesome because that means fresh produce and people with gardens that have more tomatoes and fresh vegetables than they know what to do with. 

This recipe is so simple and so easy to adjust according to what "temperature" your taste buds can handle.  I have used the base recipe to make many different temperature and flavors of salsa.  You know what they say, you can never go wrong with the original and I've had so many people that go on and on about this recipe.  However, if you do'nt like your salsa sweet then I suggest halfing the sugar that is called for.  I like the sugar and the amount of sugar in this recipe because when I make it spicy the sugar is there to immediately tone it down.  I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do in our home.  



12 Tomatoes, peeled and chopped

1 Onion- chopped

2 Bell peppers- chopped

2 Teaspoons salt

1 Tablespoon pepper, or to taste

1 1/2 Tablespoons red pepper flakes

1 Jalapeno- finely diced

Garlic salt- to taste

1 Cup sugar

2/3 Cup vinegar

Chili powder- to taste

Tobasco- to taste



Heat tomatoes, onion, and bell pepper on medium to medium high until tender.  Once tender, add sugar and vinegar and stir together.  Once combined add the rest of the ingredients and cook until salsa begins to thicken.
