Been feeling rotten again, so haven't been doing much in the kitchen, but thought I'd share this one with you. A very basic salsa, but it works, and tastes pretty good too. You can use any type of pepper depending on how much heat you like (I like jalapeno for the whole family, and habenero for me)

2 cups chopped tomato (just cut into pieces for food processor)
1 small minced onion
3 tablespoons cilantro
1 tablespoon oregano
1 chopped stemmed, and seeded pepper of choice
1 tablespoon canola oil
Salt to taste

Blend all but salt in food processor, add salt small amounts at a time just prior to serving, as it will make the salsa weep.

Works great on corn tortillas, or in many recipes. I've been playing with baked tortilla chips, but they keep coming out either rubbery, or too brown.
