We loved this recipe. My husband and daughter ate 1 quart the first day. We added 1/4 cup of cilantro to it.

It really is wonderful. I found that you can omit the sugar if you use Vidalia onions. It is plenty sweet enough.

I likewise have tried several other recipes for salsa and this is definitely the best one. I made my first batch exactly as the recipe stated and then made just a few changes to the next batch, cutting back on the sugar and using only the small can of tomato paste and it turned out wonderful. I have several family and friends who love salsa and am planning on giving it as Christmas gifts this year.

We can salsa each year and usually use the same recipe each year. This year we were looking to try something a little different and were very pleased with this recipe. It has great flavor! The cumin adds some zest to it. Thanks for sharing it!!

I thought maybe with a whole cup of Jalapeno peppers it might be too hot for us, so I cut it down to just 2 finely chopped jalapenos and it is absolutely awesome! Thanks for such a great recipe.

I've never canned salsa before and this turned out great. I cut back on the jalepano peppers and just love it.

My whole family loved this recipe! I didn't have fresh jalapeno's on hand so I used canned and cut it down to 1/4 cup on a couple batches for the kids it was still a touch spicy like a good mild salsa.

Truly wonderful! Easy, great taste, and makes a large quantity although the salsa does disappear quickly.

Easy to make and tasted great. Took it to a large family gathering for a camping weekend and it was a big hit.
