  3. 1 jalapeno pepper, chopped
  4. 2 ribs celery, chopped
  5. 1 yellow onion, chopped
  6. 2 tablespoons cumin seeds

Directions

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add oil and saute peppers, celery, onion and cumin until lightly brown, about 10 to 15 minutes. Add tomatoes, oregano and garlic.
