    Picking up some fixins to make salsa tomorrow. My wife got quite quite a haul off the two tomato plants in the garden.

    6 roma's (I use other tomatoes too)
    4 cloves of garlic minced
    1/2 red onion diced (other will work too)
    2 scallions diced
    2 jalapeno's diced
    1 chilli pepper diced
    1 bell pepper
    1 tbsp olive oil
    1 lime juiced (if you have extract it's 1 tbsp)
    cracked black pepper to taste
    Kosher salt to taste
    chili powder to taste or cayenne (for hotter)
    fresh cilantro or parsley to taste (cilantro is better)

    In a bowl combine the olive oil and the lime juice with the chili powder, salt and pepper and wisk. Then add all of the other diced stuff. I usually add another big pinch of kosher salt at this time.

    Peppers: You can add more jalapeno's here if you want it hotter or other type of peppers. I also use sweet bananas. Chipotle's are also great to add just a bit smoke flavor.

    You can add other stuff too like corn or black beans.

    It's a great fresh salsa. Really proves with an overnight marinade.

    We're going to add corn. We have too many tomatoes to eat while fresh, so we're also going to freeze some. Hopefully that works out.

    Never attribute to malice, that which can adequately be explained by stupidity.

    Wow that looks good. We are running out of tomatoes. It's ok though cause I'm tired of making salsa. I was probably making it twice a week there for awhile.
