Organizing a small event? Friends coming over to watch the game? Here is a spicy salsa (not very spicy!) And very tasty and easy to prepare - and sure better than any purchased salad dip that God knows what is included in them.

- Peel the red onion in half.
- Finely chop the first half and coarsely chop the second half.
- Red peppers - coarsely chop one pepper, finely chop the second pepper.
- Slice the garlic into as thin slices as possible.
- For the hot peppers, remove the stem tail - and slice into rounds about the thickness of a quarter inch.
- Heat canola oil in a medium pan.
- Start frying the onion and a little chopped red pepper.
- Sauté for 2-3 minutes.
- Put in the coarse onion and red pepper and hot pepper.
- Fry for 2-3 minutes until the coarse onion and pepper begins softening.
- Put in the garlic and fry for another minute.
- Add the crushed tomatoes, a little salt, pepper, sugar, oregano and paprika and stir.
- Lower the heat and reduce the sauce over low heat - about 20 minutes with the occasional stir.
- Close the heat and wait for the salsa to cool.
- You can serve it “as is”. I love to take half and grind it in a food processor for 10 seconds and then mix it back with the rest - so the flavours become richer.
It's ready! Serve along with nachos in front of a good movie or game.
