1/2 Photos of Savory Salsa
1 hr 15 mins
Tired of looking for a good (not sweet) homemade salsa similar to what you would buy in the store (for 4-6 dollars a jar)? So was I, but I have been playing with multiple salsa recipes this summer due to the few hundred pounds of tomatoes in the garden. I think this one is the best of the bunch. Everyone who has tried it has liked it and our friends even serve it at their parties at home. This is a cooked not a fresh salsa, medium hot, and can be canned.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 10 cups chopped tomatoes, skins removed and cored (if you want chunky cut it bigger, not so chunky cut them smaller on each chopped ingredient)
- 3 cups yellow onions, coarsely chopped
- 2 1/2 cups green peppers, coarsely chopped
- 2 cups jalapeno peppers, chopped (wear gloves!)
- 12 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/2-3/4 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped

- 10If you want it hotter you can use more jalapenos, hotter peppers or add red pepper flakes/crushed red pepper to your taste.
- 11Soak 7-8 ears of sweet corn in water for 30 minutes and then roast corn in the husks on the grill until done (20-30 minutes turning frequently), de-husk corn and cut off cob. Add corn to salsa for a black bean - roasted corn salsa or eliminate beans for a roasted corn salsa.
- 12No beans and no corn for a very tasty "regular" salsa.
