What you’ll need is below:

6 large tomatoes

1/2 cup of chopped onion

2 jalapeno peppers

1 bell pepper

Cilantro (to taste)


Garlic powder

Blender (or food processor)


Thoroughly wash all vegetables.

Slice each tomato into four parts. Remove the core or the hard center part of the tomato. Place your tomato pieces in the blender and mix thoroughly, to a consistency you prefer. Pour the tomato mixture into a medium size mixing bowl. Depending on whether you like thick, chunky salsa or a more blended, uniform sauce, you decide by how long to blend/chop.

Chop onion and place it in the blender. Blend thoroughly. Pour onions into the mixing bowl with tomatoes.

Prepare bell peppers and jalapeno peppers for chopping by removing stems, cutting in half and removing the seeds. Leave the jalapeno seeds in to make a hotter sauce. Place the peppers in the blender and blend thoroughly. Add to the mixture in the mixing bowl.

Stir all vegetables together, mixing well.

Enhance the flavor of your sauce by adding garlic powder, cilantro, sea salt and any other seasoning you desire.

Store your homemade sauce in an air-tight container and refrigerate.
