"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Wash cilantro and oregano. Strip leaves from large stems before chopping. Combine with onion, jalapeņos, and garlic in a food processor.

Combine tomatoes with herbs, add salt and the juice of one lime, mix. Refrigerate for two hours. Serve with tortilla chips. Note: You can use fresh vine ripe tomatoes.
