Ingredients:  
4-6 hearty tomatoes, I prefer romas because they are little bit heavier.
1 juicy tomato, any of the round variety works
2 limes
2-3 clove of garlic...depending on how much you like garlic
1 handful of cilantro...leaves only as the stems can get kind of woody
salt and pepper to taste
1 medium onion this would be a substitute for the garlic... I only use one or the other depending
what I have available.
1 sweet bell pepper red, yellow or orange work best they also add a nice color.
1-4 hot peppers, depending on how hot you like it, any variety will do...habenero's are the hottest, while jalapeņos are a little less spicy. Cayenne peppers work well also. If you do not have fresh peppers you may substitute crushed red peppers (dried). This works especially well in the colder months. If you have a mortar and pestle you can buy whole dried peppers and grind them yourself.
New Mexico Red chili or Paprika
Vinegar-plain white variety is what I use but some of the infused vinegar might be fun to try.

Directions:
Directions:
Begin by quartering your tomatoes and placing them in a blender or food processor. Blend together with the juice of limes and add nearly an equal amount of vinegar. Then add the crushed garlic, peppers etc. Once blended add a good sprinkling of New Mexican red chile ...this gives the salsa a nice red color without altering the flavor. Paprika will work just as well if you have that on hand. If you like your salsa a little chunky save a portion of all the chopped ingredients and add these at the very end. Add salt and pepper to taste. If you have time, it is best to make this up ahead of time as it takes a few hour for all the flavor to really meld.
