Tomato Salsa Recipe

4 medium size tomatoes
3/4 cup chopped onions
2 chopped green chili or to taste
1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste
a few cilantro leaves
2 tablespoon oil
1 teaspoon vinegar or lemon juice

Slit the skin of the tomato and put them in boiling water for a few minutes.
When the skin starts separating, drain the water and let it cool.  When the tomatoes are cool enough to handle remove the skin.  Chop the peeled tomatoes and keep it aside.

To a pan on medium heat add 2 tablespoon of oil and the chopped onions.
Saute it until the onions are translucent do not allow it to turn brown, add the chopped green chilies saute for a few seconds, add the chopped tomatoes and cook until the tomatoes are cooked, add a few chopped cilantro leaves.  If you like you can grind the salsa at this point with a hand blender or serve it as it, I like to serve it as is, it is nice to bite into the tomatoes and green chilies.  Transfer to a bowl add a teaspoon of vinegar.
Serve as a dip or topping.
