Using this recipe, you will be able to conquer the world. Me? I'm too lazy... Just remember me when you get to the top.

- 2 tablespoons salt (more to taste)
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 garlic clove
- 1 medium lime
- 1⁄2 large yellow onion (NOT white)

- 1 large yellow bell pepper
- 1 large red bell pepper
- 3 -5 jalapeno peppers
- 1 habanero pepper
- Add tomatoes, salt, chili powder, garlic, habanero and juice of lime to a blender and blend until liquified. Use enough tomatoes to make approximately 22-24oz of tomato base.

- Stir using a wooden spoon.
- Put it in the fridge for 36 hours, stirring every 8-12 hours with a wooden spoon.

- It's not ABSOLUTELY necessary to wait for 36 hours, but highly recommended.
First time I've ever made salsa; the hordes are demanding MORE! My first batch was a little salty, maybe because I used sea salt, so I used less. Also have tried with cumin instead of chili powder and that's good too! If you like mild salsa, skip the habanero and maybe one of the jalapenos. But the fresh taste of the tomatoes and peppers and onions is absolutely delicious!
Great recipe! And super easy (I used a food processor for most of the chopping).
