Wow! I will never buy commercial salsa again! I used fresh cherry and roma tomatoes, jalapenos, and bell peppers from my garden. The flavor is amazing. This is great with black beans and corn added (although I'm not sure it's safe to can with them). I only add about half the cumin, and I never peel the tomatoes. Thank you!
My family says this is the best salsa ever. I don't usually like salsa and I loved this one. I tweaked the ingredients to better suit their tastes but overall followed the recipe - just changed the amounts and used Roma tomatoes. After tasting the first batch, my husband asked me to make more while our tomatoes are plentiful. I've already made a 2nd batch!
Delicious. My hands are on fire though because I forgot the gloves. Don't forget to wear gloves when chopping jalapeño peppers!!
Perfect recipe for extra tomatoes and peppers from my garden. I sliced off and added the corn kernels from three ears of corn. The salsa was the best I have ever had and everyone I shared it with raved about. I doubled the recipe and made it again the following week. Thanks for a great recipe.
Made this the other day and loved it! I made everything from fresh garden veggies. A lot of work but it was well worth it. Best salsa I have ever had. Thank for this recipe!
This is a fabulous salsa. I found the recipe a few years ago. I make no less than 100 qts each year. I give away so many quarts for people to try. All of them say it is the best they have ever tasted and ask for the recipe. My changes include: I do not use the jalapeno seeds in my salsa. Also, I use white vinegar. In addition, I add approx. 1/4 cup dried parsley (optional). If I want a hotter salsa, I add the jalapeno seeds from a couple of the peppers to the mix.<br/><br/>For a milder salsa I use 1/3 cup Jalapeno peppers and 1 tsp. cumin. <br/>My Yield 4 qts or 8 pts.
I am surprised this salsa received such high ratings. I thought it was very bland. I used tomatoes and peppers out of my garden, so it was very fresh. I added red cherry peppers, green chiles, and a little chili powder to get a better flavor.
We love this salsa! our garden didn't do well with tomatoes last year so we had to buy tomatoes just to make it. :) We add 1/2 bunch of cilantro, 1 can corn and 1 can black beans per recipe. I also cut down on the paste/sauce or just use what I have on hand. This keeps it less saucy and closer to a fresh salsa. To make mild, remove half of the jalapeños seeds. It is truly a favorite in my house and my hubby pretty much won't eat any other salsa. SO YUMMY!
Perfect. From now on this will be the only way for us to have salsa. Thank you for sharing.
My husband said this was the best salsa he ever had. The only thing different I did was to add 1 tablespoon of garlic salt instead of fresh garlic..which I didn't have. We love it. Thanks for posting.
