This recipe was given to me by a precious friend from Temple. It's becoming one of the precious few (if not the only) things I am quasi-known for around Abilene! People LOVE my hot sauce! Sadly, my 'quality control' is a little 'if-fy' and I NEVER KNOW how hot it's going to be. So, roll your dice...:

1 lg. (28 oz.) can tomatoes (diced, crushed, or whole – whatever’s cheapest!)
cilantro (I like to use a LOT – 1 bunch if there is plenty, 2 bunches if small)
½ medium onion
1 or 2 jalapenos

Blend together in blender. Pour into saucepan. Add:
1 TBSP. salt
½ TBSP. cumin
½ TBSP. garlic powder
1 TBSP. veg. oil

Mix together. Heat over med./low heat until just beginning to boil. (It starts as an almost green color because of the cilantro – as it heats, it turns a rich red color. This is how I judge when it’s done). Enjoy and share with many others!
