Mix all ingredients together in a large pot. Cook over low heat until all ingredients are soft, approximately 45 minutes. Chill and serve with your favorite Mexican dish.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe can be more or less tailored to your tastes. Fresh jalapenos are very hot - and the more seeds and pulp you add, the hotter they become in the salsa. To "tame it down", discard all or some of the seeds. Start with 1/4 to 1/2 cup for mild to medium salsa - then add more depending on your tolerance for heat. I chop all the tomatoes, peppers and onions in a food processor. All of these can be left somewhat "chunky" or finely chopped, depending on your preference.
