Smiling Coyote Salsa

This salsa freezes well and adjusts easily to your heat preference. It's better with Smiling Coyote Farms vine ripened tomatoes and chilies but excellent using canned tomatoes as well. When tomatoes are in season, substitute an equal amount of chopped paste tomatoes for canned. Either way, it's better than any off-the-shelf salsa... Even the one from New York City. Ingredients 1 - 28 oz. can crushed tomatoes 20 - 28 oz. by volume water depending on thickness desired 1/4 cup rice (or other) vinegar 1 onion finely diced 4 large or 6 small jalapenos, finely diced  (see "Adjusting Heat" below) 3 cloves garlic minced 2 teaspoons salt (or to taste) 1 teaspoon Mexican oregano 1 bunch fresh cilantro, large stems removed, chopped Adjusting Heat For a very mild salsa, remove seeds from all jalapenos. For a little spice, leave seeds in one or two. For some real heat, use all the seeds. To maximize the firepower even more, substitute serrano chilies for
