This is pretty much how I make my salsa, too! Depending on who will be eating it, the chiles can be increased, decreased, or you can substitute your favorites. You can also make Salsa Roja by using Roma tomatoes instead of the tomatillos. I usually add a dash of lime juice, a large chopped onion and some chopped cilantro (I hate it, but my ex, who is from Mexico used to insist on it!) to the blender before you "buzz" it! Good authentic recipe!!
