This is a recipe for what is marketed as "picante" sauce. Picante is the Spanish word for spicy or spicy hot, and this dish can be adjusted from mild to wild, depending on your taste. I was given the foundation for this recipe by an old girlfriend who still lives in Monterey, Mexico. The original recipe called for boiling the tomato, onion and peppers for about 5 minutes before blending them. Also she only added a little salt and cilantro to her salsa. I "doctored" it up a little and everyone agreed (even the old girlfriend) that it was much more flavorful my way. For the record, I don't boil any ingredient in this recipe. I like the 100% fresh flavor of it. This is the recipe I use to make salsa for my fiance, because, unlike my fiance (and most people) I like mine eardrum burning hot.
