Ingredients

1 28 oz. can whole fire-roasted tomatoes and liquid, (Muir Glen is an excellent one)
1 7 oz. can chopped green chiles (or one large anaheim
chile, roasted under a broiler or on a gas
burner. When the skin is completely blackened,
place the chile in a brown paper bag to
sweat for a few minutes. Peel the skin off, slice
open and remove and discard the stem and
seeds. Chop.) (Any chile you can find may be
adapted, more or less to taste, just be careful
of the oils and seeds which contain the most
heat.)
1 large clove of finely chopped garlic, or 1/2 t. garlic
salt
2-3 scallions, chopped (include the green parts)
1 T. olive oil
2 teaspoons red wine vinegar or apple cider
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano, or use twice as much
fresh
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
Salt and Pepper to taste

Method
