An easy salsa recipe using canned tomatoes. Great for making large batches!

Top Review by Charlotte J

OH MY!!! I canned this salsa back on 9-30-08. I was shocked to see I forgot to review this when I used a jar of it in another recipe. I made as written but used Clear Jell instead of starch. Clear Jell gives any food that needs thickening a nice clear appearance instead of the cloudy, like flour and corn starch gives food. My DH likes this salsa since I did not put any hot sauce it in. I'll continue making this recipe for him and the HOT ones for the rest of the family. Just watch that it does not scorch in the bottom of the pan as it will thicken food fast, keep stirring. We have really enjoyed this salsa and I will be making it again this season. Clear Jell can be purchased through Kitchencraft (1-800-776-0575) in Waterville, IA.
