Tomato and Chile Pepper Salsa Recipe

We love to make homemade salsa and frankly, we rarely buy the stuff at the store. When you make it yourself, you are controlling the ingredients yourself and you can make it as spicy or as sweet as you would like it. One of our favorite homemade salsa recipes is one that I got from my mother-in-law about 20 years ago. It is delicious!
Tomato and Chile Pepper Salsa Recipe

28 oz. can diced tomatoes
1/3 cup green Chile peppers, finely chopped
1/4 cup onions, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon brown sugar

In a large mixing bowl combine together all of the above ingredients in the order they are given in the recipe until well combined. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for 2 to 6 hours to allow the flavors to infuse. Remove and serve chilled with your favorite snacks.

Note: If you like it less spicy, you can cut down on the chile peppers. If you like it a little more sweat, add in additional white or brown sugar. In addition, you can toss in some chopped up green peppers, canned pineapple or mangoes if desired.
