1 red bell pepper, seeded

2 green bell peppers, seeded

2 large tomatoes

2 medium onions, peeled

1 head of garlic, peeled

1 bunch of cilantro leaves

½ bunch of parsley leaves

Chop up the ingredients in pieces small enough to fit in a food processor or a blender. Remove any tough-looking stems.

Place the chopped ingredients in the blender or food processor.

Blend the ingredients well. The consistency should be like a thick paste, similar to pesto. Add salt and pepper to taste, if you like.

Store in a glass container.
