I made this salsa last fall with tomatoes and peppers from my garden and gave the jars as Christmas gives with homemade tortilla chips. Oh, the raves I received. My hair stylist still talks about it and says it was the best salsa he has ever had. Thanks for the great recipe Rita. I hope my tomatoes will produce enough for me to make it again!

This recipe rocks for flavor and texture, extactly what I was looking for, I did add extra chipolte chilis as I love the smoky flavor. I measured right on, and came out with 8 pint jars. Of course one never made it to the pantry, the teens devoured it!

Yummy recipe! I made mine hotter by using 4 chipoltes and adding a habenaro. I also subbed lemon juice for the vinegar. I only had a 6oz can of tomato paste, so I added a little tomatoe sauce. It turned out nice and thick. My son tasted it and loves it! This beats the salsa I made last year by far! Thanks Rita!!

Great flavors- I did not use the vinegar cuz I do not like it in salsa and it is never around long enough to can or store. This had a grat flavor and was devoured in less time that it took to make it! Thanks Rita

Nice, tasty salsa. It did seem a little vinegary for me, but I have that problem with a lot of canned salsas. I wonder if it could be safely canned with 1/2 or 1/3 cup vinegar instead?

This is a great recipe! I love the addition of chipolte/adobo. I fire roasted the tomatoes. The hot/sweet peppers make nice heat that doesn't linger. I used 1/2 c. cilantro and 1/2 c. parsley. I also omitted the diced green chiles (hubby doesn't like). After plenty of tasting-this made 4 full qts. YUM!!! They are cooling on the counter now! Can hardly wait to make more!

Wish i could give more than 5 stars for this recipe! I've tried a lot of different salsas, and have to say this is the very best homemade salsa i've made. It's the chipotle that does it, I think... it not only adds that delicious smokey flavour but it masks the vinegar taste I associate with most homemade products. I added a hot "ring of fire" pepper and left the seeds in the peppers (for extra heat), and i didn't use the canned green chilis. Yummmmmy!

Delicious medium heat salsa that was very easy to put together. I halved this recipe using about six cups of tomatoes, 2 jalapenos and one serrano, keeping the one can of green chilies and the whole lime (all the other ingredients were cut in half) making six jelly glasses (12 ounces) of delicious salsa. I also increased the processing time to 20 minutes due to our higher alititude (we are at 5000 ft). This salsa is so pretty in the jars that it will make great gifts or just to use. Thanks for sharing this keeper!
