"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Ingredients:  
2 large cans whole peeled tomatoes, chilled
5-7 jalapeņos
1 bunch cilantro
1 medium sized red onion
1-2 limes
Salt & pepper

Directions:
Directions:
Begin by using a blender to slightly blend the whole peeled tomatoes. Prior to blending, add salt and pepper to the tomatoes, not too much but enough to see it. This is the only time you will add salt and pepper to the salsa. One can of the tomatoes will fill your blender pitcher so you will need to do this twice.
Slice the jalapeņos in quarters, remove the internal veins and seeds. This is where the majority of the heat comes from. If you like it hot then by all means keep some of them in there. Either use a food processor or finely chop the jalapeņos to a size of your liking.
Peel and dice the red onion.
Wash and chop the cilantro. Again personal preference on the coarseness of the chop.
Pour the blended tomatoes into a large bowl. One at a time, fold in the other items. Once all items have been mixed together, add the juice of 1 or 2 limes (again this is personal preference). You will need to add some so don't skip this all together.
Once all items are blended, chill for 2-3 hours . Serve with your favorite tortilla chip.
You can increase the amount of each ingredient to increase the output.

I would recommend you do not serve this with Fritos--too much salt and oil. The lighter the chip the better.
