    My basic salsa, (not hot sauce) includes all you said plus all the different peppers I can throw in, plus some sort of citrus juice - lime, lemon, or orange,+ a touch of sugar.
    Another good one is 1 lb. of roasted tomatillos, 2 avocados, several peppers, lime juice, a bit of cumin, a clove or 2 (or 7) of garlic, shake of oregano, a dash of vinegar-blend the whole shebang together-Break out the Margaritas and chips-put on bathing suit and sit by the pool or beach,

    Last week I canned 8 pints of salsa using a recipe from the University of Minnesota Extension Service. http://www.extension.umn.edu/distribution/nutrition/components/3470f11.html
    It calls for 5 lb. tomatoes, 2 lb. chile peppers, 1 lb. onions, 1 cup vinegar, 1 T salt. I added 4 cloves of garlic. The amount of heat depends on how much of the pepper seeds and pulp you use. I included about a third of it and it is pleasantly spicy, not overpowering (except to timid tasters like my wife's).

    My Dad brought a jar of this back from a restaurant in Seattle, and we de-constructed the recipe, as best as we could determine.

    Tomatillo salsa

    1 1/2 lbs. tomatillos, husked and rinsed
    1/4 c. diced onion
    1-2 cloves chopped garlic
    4 oz. canned chopped green chilies
    2-3 green onions, chopped
    1 habanero pepper
    1 seeded jalapeno pepper
    1 tsp. oregano
    1 tbsp. lime juice
    1/2 tsp. salt
    small bunch chopped cilantro leaves

    Cut tomatillos in half and put in saucepan with water to cover. Bring to boil, reduce heat and let simmer 2-3 minutes, until soft. Drain and cool tomatillos.Put everything in blender or food processor and process to desired texture. Refrigerate. Eat.
