  • 1 jalapeno
  • ~1/4 cup water

Heat oil in medium sauce pan. When hot, add onion, garlic, jalapeno, and tomatoes. After about 1 minute, add enough water to achieve desired consistency. Simmer for about 10-15 minutes.

Pour into a clean jar and let cool to room temperature before placing in refrigerator. Makes ~1 pint.
