I use an electric chopper (food processor) to dice the seasonings fairly fine, about 1/8 inch cubes.

3 cups chopped onions 
6 jalapeño peppers, seeded, finely chopped 
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped 
2 12-ounce cans tomato paste (adds body) 
2 cups bottled lemon or lime juice (if you are using a mix, be sure to follow their recipe; the packet mixes often use vinegar instead of lemon juice) 
1 tablespoon salt (optional) 
1 tablespoon sugar (optional - you use Splenda if you are on a sugar-restricted diet, or simply omit the sugar) 
1 teaspoon black pepper 
1 tablespoon ground cumin (optional) 
2 tablespoons oregano leaves or chopped cilantro (optional)
