Makes about 6 (16 oz) pints or 12 (8 oz) half pints

Ingredients

Cost per serving $4.24 view details
  • 10 cups chopped cored peeled tomatoes (about 25 medium) ( I use roma tomatos for thicker salsa)
  • 5 cups chopped seeded peppers (about 4 large bell peppers) ( I use california chili peppers, serrano, or whatever hot or not hot peppers I have in my garden)
  • 5 cups chopped onions (about 6 to 8 medium)
  • 2-1/2 cups chopped seeded chili peppers, such as hot banana, Hungarian wax, serrano or jalapeño (about 13 medium) ( I always use jalepeno here)
  • 1-1/4 cups cider vinegar, lemon juice or lime juice
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp finely chopped cilantro
  • 1 Tbsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 Tbsp leaf oregano
  • 2 cans (6oz) tomato paste
  • 6 (16 oz) pint or 12 (8 oz) half pint glass preserving jars with lids and bands

Directions

  1. PREPARE boiling water canner. Heat jars and lids in simmering water until ready for use. Do not boil. Set bands aside.
  2. COMBINE tomatoes, green peppers, onions, chili peppers, vinegar, garlic, cilantro, salt, in a large stainless steel saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and boil gently, stirring frequently, until slightly thickened, about 10 minutes.

    Love this recipe was looking for a mild salsa that was close to pace picante, family can't stand much heat. So I cut the hot peppers in half also the oregano in half. Increased the cilantro and onions it was so close I couldn't believe it wasn't a copy cat recipe. We love it. Used 1 to 3 ration of sweet red pepper to green pepper for the 5 cup part. For the hot peppers I used 1/2 c jalapeño , and 1/2 cup hot peppers still not sure variety but really hot hot hot, very prolific but not sure the name of it also green ones and red ones.. .any questions feel free to contact me through site. Thank you whom ever made up this zesty recipe .
