California Tomato Salsa

Recipe from: "LIMEYNO1" <thelimeyno1@home.com>
Servings: 4

1 large Head of garlic minced or Pressed
4 large Onions finely chopped
2 Sweet peppers chopped finely
5 jalapeño peppers
28 ounce tomato sauce
13 ounce tomato paste
chili powder
Oregano
Parsley
Olive oil

Trim the ends off the hot peppers and chop them finely, but don't remove the core or seeds. In a large pot (Dutch oven) heat enough olive oil to cover the bottom with about ⅛" on low-medium heat. Add garlic & sauté for a few minutes, making sure it doesn't stick. Add onions. Sauté until translucent. Add oregano, parsley, and whatever other spices you might like (to your own taste). Cook, stirring regularly, until the mixture is quite soft. Chop fresh tomatoes or mash canned ones fairly fine (depending on how chunky you want it). Add them to the pot. Add tomato sauce and paste. Let simmer a while. Great for dipping corn chips or to top off rice and beans.
