I'm making Chile sauce today and using the same ingredients you listed. There is a nice recipe in the Ball Blue Book. You put the mixed pickling spices in a cheese cloth bag to simmer.

Take all the vegetables, cutting tomatoes into 6 pieces, onions in rings, peppers in chunks,coarse salt. Let sit on the stove all night, you might add zucchini or any vegetable you wish.

Next AM take handfuls of this and rinse well. Put in a pot, add cold water, vinegar and sugar turn up to 7 and stir frequently.

Simmer 2 1/2 hours on low. Then in a cup make a paste from corn starch and spices and vinegar, enough to pour into pot. Let it thicken for about a half hour and while it's hot put it in the bottles and seal well.

This recipe from CDKitchen for Green Tomato Chow Chow serves/makes 12 bottles
