Recipe from: An Edible Christmas (A Treasury of Recipes of the Holiday) by Irena Chalmers.
1 28-ounce can whole tomatoes, undrained
2 Fresh hot green chili pepper, seeded and minced
½ cup chopped canned green chili peppers
½ cup Finely chopped white or yellow onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons Lime juice
In a medium saucepan, bring all the ingredients to a simmer over medium-low heat, then cook for 5 minutes. Spoon the salsa into hot, sterilized jars and attach the lids. Process the jars in a boiling water bath for 5 minutes. Remove from the water and cool at room temperature. Note: The canned chili peppers will make a milder salsa than if you use fresh chiles.
After opening, you can extend the salsa (and mute the heat a little) by stirring in a cupful of minced bell peppers or thawed corn kernels. A tablespoon or so of chopped coriander leaves adds a nice fillip. Makes about 2 pints.
