    I love pico de gallo. It has tomato, onion, jalapeño, cilantro (cooling!), and other ingredients. Just do a search for a recipe . It's my fav!

    Mine is more like a sauce than a salsa... but we love it.

    Two cans of stewed tomatoes, drain most of juice off.
    2 tsp. of Crushed red pepper flakes
    2 TBLSP of Sugar
    2 TBLSP of White Vinegar

    Pulse tomotoes in processor or blender a few times to break down or to chop.
    Add in the pepper flakes, sugar, and vinegar. Bring to a slight boil on the stove and let simmer about 5 min. Serve Hot or warm. (Heat of peppers will intensify as you go).

    NOTE (I use this sauce on all mexican food, and when I make egg rolls, or on anything really). My family loves it.

    I don't like cilantro.

    Annaquilts- that sounds divine! I might use lime juice (but we have lemons in the garden). I like my salsa chunky and zingy.

    I don't have a recipe but this is what I do and everyone raves over it.

    1 large can tomatoes( quick pulsed in processor, but still in chunks)
    1 tomato sauce
    1 large onion
    small can corn niblets(drained)
    small can black beans(undrained)
    small bunch cilantro
    dab of sugar and vinegar, lime juice, lemon juice(something for tartness
    smoked salt to taste

    I don't use jalapeno (we like mild), but could use to taste

    2 cans WHOLE tomatoes, liquid drained off
    1 onion, chunked
    2 Tblsp minced garlic
    1 Tbls cilantro
    several Tbls jalapenos

    Process in a food processor. Amounts can be adjusted according to taste.

    I need a good salsa recipe too. Tomatoes all over the place! So happy to have them.


    I need to can some of it in jars. Would this be processed the same as tomatoes?

    when I make salsa, there's lots! Make sure you wear gloves of some sort to protect your skin from the capsasin in
    the hot peppers. My Dh grows lots of tasty veggies. This year I canned about a dozen pints of salsa.

    Homegrown Tomato salsa
    2 doz or more tomatoes, seeded and chopped(yellow,red and roma this year)
    3 large onions
    1 head of garlic
    a mix of bell peppers in several colors(chopped and seeded)
    a mix of poblano,anaheim,jalapeno and yellow banana peppers(chopped and seeded)
    cilantro(optional)
    1 1/2 cups cider vinegar
    2 TBS canning salt
    Simmer it all in a huge pot until the hot and ladle into hot pint jars and then put into a water bath canner for 25 minutes. My salsa tastes better when its let cure for about 2 months so that the vinegar becomes less apparent.
