Nicks Peppers and Tomatoes
My Dad was a great cook.
He used to dice everything by hand now I use the food processor.
This is an Italian relish, salsa or sauce. Take your pick.
Ten cloves garlic.
One teaspoon salt
Five red peppers and five green peppers
Two to three jalapeño depending on how spicy you like it.
I usually use two and it just has a kick but my kids like it hotter.
Two small cans of tomato sauce
One level teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
Six tablespoons olive oil
Heat the oil in a large frying pan.
Take out your food processor
First process the garlic and salt
Wash and dry all the peppers.
Remove the stem. white pith and all the seeds and cut the pepper into chunks.
Put about three peppers in the processor at a time and process till diced.
Pour into the hot oil and keep the heat to medium.
Repeat with the remaining peppers.
I use the entire jalapeño except for the stem because the seeds have a lot of heat
Let all the peppers cook for about ten minutes till they soften up.
Add the tomato sauce, garlic powder and salt.
Let this all simmer till the tomato sauce starts to thicken.
You must stir often.
Adjust your salt.
Serve it with crackers as a salsa, mix it with your eggs and cheese or serve it with fish or meat.
I use it as my cheat snack with low calorie crackers.
This freezes great.
