Fresh Salsa from Mom

There is nothing quite like Homemade Salsa.
This is my mom's recipe, and she could whip it up in no time flat. It is always amazing! I really prefer this recipe over any other salsa that I've found anywhere else.

In fact... I made this batch at 10:30pm one night...

So, it really helps to have a chopper, but if you don't, just get your chopping hand ready!

Fresh Salsa
The Double Dipped Life

1 1-lb can tomatoes
6 TB chopped green peppers
2-3 chopped green onion
6 TB chopped fresh tomatoes
6 TB chopped onion
1 TB Parsley or Cilantro (I love cilantro, so I use lots more)
1 small can green chilies
1 TB Red Wine vinegar
pinch of Mexican oregano
1/4 teas minced garlic (Fresh is best)
1/4 teas chili pepper
1 teas lime juice
1 teas salt
1/4 teas cumin
1/8 teas pepper
1/2 avocado, optional
If hotter taste is preferred (yes!) add 1/2 can of jalapenos, and more chili pepper

Mix all ingredients together.

Optional: Depending on the texture you like, you can place some or all of the salsa in a food processor and process until done. I usually only blend 1/4-1/2 of the mixture, as I like chunky salsa.

Let sit for 1-2 hours in refrigerator for flavors to blend.
