Chunky Tomato Salsa

Recipe by MMers
READY IN: 1hr 30mins


  • 12
    cups skinned tomatoes, chopped and drained well (approx 15 lbs)
  • 3
    cups chopped sweet red peppers
  • 3
    cups chopped sweet green peppers
  • 3
    cups chopped jalapeno peppers (include seeds if you like it very hot)
  • 3
    cups chopped onions
  • 1
    head garlic, minced
  • 3
    teaspoons salt
  • 4 12
  • 2
    (5 ounce) cans tomato paste


  • In REALLY large, heavy pot (we use a corn pot) combine all ingredients.
  • Bring to boil, reduce heat to medium and cook uncovered, stirring frequently, for about 60 minutes or until thickened.
  • Since we usually make a huge batch of this salsa all at once, we do put it into a hot water bath and process it for about 20 minutes. Smaller batches can be made and frozen for use within one month.
