Red Wine and Thyme Tomato Salsa

I made it and served it with some tortilla chips and it was gone, in fifteen minutes. So good. Use good quality fresh Italian tomatoes. You’ll like it. I promise. Enjoy the week!

Heat the olive oil over medium high heat and add the onion, bell pepper, garlic and chilli flakes and cook over low heat for 5 minutes.

Add the red wine, tomatoes, sugar and enough salt to taste. Increase the heat and let simmer uncovered for 8 minutes. Cover, reduce heat and simmer another ten minutes. Add the dried thyme and set aside to cool. Adjust seasoning, stir in some olive oil and then serve with tortilla chips.
