Want to kick it up a notch? Grill the tomatoes, onions, and peppers for a smokey layer of flavor. If you don't feel like grilling outdoors? Add a small teaspoon of canned chipotle peppers for that smokey flavor. How about adding some summer flare? grilled pineapple!
*If you're wary about the spice level, start with banana peppers or green bell peppers for a more mild flavor and experiment with adding more heat over time.
