Homemade Salsa

This recipe came from my mother-in-law. I've tweaked it a little to fit our tastes. Everyone that tries it says it tastes like restaurant salsa!

Homemade Salsa
2 cans (14.5 oz) petite diced tomatoes, slightly drained (You can also use about 4 cups of fresh tomatoes. Just cut them in half, squeeze a little of the juice/seeds out, and then dice them)
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 tsp. salt
2 yellow banana peppers, fresh or from a jar, seeded & chopped
2 jalapeno peppers, fresh or from a jar, seeded & chopped
fresh cilantro (a large handful of leaves only)
2-3 green onions, chopped
1/4 c. white onion, chopped

If using fresh peppers, boil them in water for about 15 minutes until soft. Then chop fine. Add everything to blender and blend until soupy.

Chill and then serve with tortilla chips.
