Very tasty and easy to make! I used three jalapenos with half the seeds, doubled the tabasco, and used a 16oz can of paste. I could not find a red chili pepper in the store so I threw in some ground red pepper. Turned out a perfect medium heat. Everyone who has tried it loves it! And the best part is I don't can and it option to freeze was why I tried this recipe. I will make it again! Thank you for sharing!

I was given about 25 Roma tomatoes and chose to make this and I'm glad I did! This has lots of flavor and made 3 i/2 pints of sauce. I did leave out the tomato paste, I didn't have on hand, and only used 1 jalapeno pepper(I'm a whimp). Lovely recipe! Thanks! Oh, I picked this recipe for the Chef of the Day game.
