Canned the Summer in a Salsa !

"Made with red and green tomatoes, bell peppers, jalapeños, habanero, Tabasco chiles from the garden. Keeping the Hot and Spicy summer with you throughout the winter. I posted the recipe so you can adjust the pepper to the heat and variety you enjoy! This is HOT! Any of the hot chili's you use be sure to mince them fine! This can be made in 1 pint jars making 7 of them. I go for 1/2 pint because for gifts they go farther."

    I love this recipe! I made it last summer and ran out by March. This summer I am definitely canning more jars. I typically leave some seeds in the jalapenos (we like it hot), add a little sugar, an extra can of tomato paste and extra cilantro. Sometimes I will even add black beans and corn. Thanks for the great recipe!

    This salsa is great! The only thing I'm upset about is not realizing what a pint size is. You'd think after all these years I would. So...I have to refrigerate 1/2 of the salsa I made. That said, it's very good. Thanks for the great and easy recipe.

    This is the best salsa! Everyone loved the heat. I chopped by hand some of the red tomatoes and then used the food processor to chop the rest of the ingredients. I used one habanero, 2 chili peppers and the rest jalapenos. I did use red and green tomatoes. Thank you know I love your canning recipes.

    very yumie!!! My family and I love this salsa. My mother in law also likes it also due to the fact that her home grown tomatos don't go to wast. The secound batch I made I put a little more lime juice in it that made it really good I think that it gave it more of a summer tast to it. It will be a recipe that get used alot!
