Easy Salsa Recipe


Got lots of tomatoes that you need to use up?  I’ve got the perfect solution.  How about make some salsa? 


I found this quick and easy… well, it’s quick if you don’t count your chopping time… recipe for salsa that our family loves.  What’s nice is it makes up a large batch and you get all those tomatoes used up so they don’t go to waste.

Easy Salsa Recipe
  • 12 cups skinned, chopped tomatoes
  • 6 large diced onions
  • 1/2 cup diced hot peppers
  • 1 – 12 oz can tomato paste
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced (I use minced garlic in spice jar)
  • 3 green peppers
  • 3 tablespoons of canning salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • paperika to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  1. Bring to a boil and simmer for 20 minutes. Ladle into sterilized pint canning jars and add lid and rings. Process in water bath for 15 minutes (20 minutes for altitudes 1000 to 6000 ft, 25 minutes above 6000 ft). Note: I like to add 1/4 tsp citric acid to each jar.

    Looks delicious!
    I have a tortilla press on my list of (I want) kitchen tools/gadgets. It’s so easy to make your own chips after making the tortillas. A nice winter activity when stuck inside and it would go nicely with homemade salsa.
    I have the remaining package of Carolina Reapers in my refrigerator from my kids challenge. I may cut a small one to add to a batch. Did you use Jalapeño’s?
    Thank you for sharing your recipe.
