What a great recipe! This salsa recipe lends itself to adaptation quite readily, so please do not be afraid to experiment with different types and amounts of peppers. I happened to have several home grown anaheim chili peppers and a couple of serrano, so I used those in this recipe. I did not have tomato paste or tomato sauce on hand, and since I wanted to make just enough for use the same day, i substituted a little bit more fresh tomato and a small amount of water so that things wouldn't dry out.
I was really pleased with the flavor. The sweetness that others mentioned in their reviews was there, but it really seemed to come from the anaheim and bell peppers themselves, complimented by the brown sugar.
I would definitely kick the spice up a notch with some more serrano or other hot peppers next time, but I really enjoyed the flavor and texture of this salsa.
Don't forget that if you add cilantro, you'll want to do so near the end of the cooking process. Simmering cilantro will dissipate most of the flavor that it adds.
