I hate store bought salsas, and find this is fresher and better tasting. I use jarred jalapenos if I can't find fresh, but have used other hot peppers too. You can adjust the spiciness/sweetness to your liking. This is best in the summer when tomatoes are at their peak, but I find even in winter it is delicious; a nice way to get some fresh veggies in when there isn't much to pick from. I also use it in my black bean soup.
