“best salsa recipe using canned tomatoes quick salsa recipe with fresh tomatoes”

The quickest, most delicious blender salsa recipe ever. This restaurant style salsa takes just 5 minutes to whip up and it’s so so good. Serve it with chips or use it anywhere salsa is called for. Everyone is going to LOVE this!
This is a good basic fresh salsa recipe and I keep the tomato juice out by using roma tomatoes as they are easy to seed and you have less juice to contend with. I like using the Serrano pepper for a little different flavor, and use chopped green onions when I have them. This is an easy recipe to alter for your own specific taste.
This is what you make when your tomato harvest is more plentiful then planned. Everything about this recipe was so simple. I used only two of the serranos, and it gave plenty of kick to the salsa. Also, I used the juice of a whole lime. This morning my husband took the salsa into work. His coworkers raved over how delicious it was, and what a keeper I am.

This year’s plans are TBD, thanks to my sweet fiancé who knows how much I love a good surprise. But I did go ahead and whip up a batch of this salsa recipe to have on hand for my bday and Cinco De Mayo this week, which I’ve already been putting to good use. And hey — since I don’t eat many sweets or crave a traditional birthday cake anymore — this seemed like my kind of birthday treat recipe to share on the blog today. ?
Thank you for sharing this recipe – it is delicious!!! I made it last week for the first time and just made another batch today for Sunday. I have been on the search for a long time for a great salsa recipe and this is it! Perfect!
This chunky, smoky salsa tastes amazing with tortilla chips. Roasted tomatoes, garlic, onion and jalapeno are blended with cilantro and cumin to create one of the tastiest and easiest Mexican-inspired recipes you’ll ever try.
I am a real believer in the fact that using quality ingredients especially in the simplest dishes, will take them to a whole new level of awesomeness! And when making salsa nothing beats using fragrant heirloom tomatoes! The absolute best!

We’ve been canning this recipe for years, and it is our absolute favorite! I’ve lost track of how many times we’ve been asked to share it. A lot of canned recipes up on the sweet side, which we don’t like. This isn’t sweet at all, and you can easily adjust the heat to your preference. Based on other reviews, we have tweeked the original to our liking: -reduce vinegar to a 1/2 c -increase lime juice to 1/3c -Add cumin and oregano to taste -Increase salt to 2-3 TBSP to taste We also run an immersion blender through half and finely hand dice the rest for more a more chunky salsa. A helpful tip: jalapeno heat is kind of a crap-shoot! I usually get everthing mixed/adjusted for taste W/O the jalapenos first. Then, we add those last so we can adjust the heat as desired. You can’t go wrong with this recipe! The only downside is you won’t be able to keep up with demand. Come early summer, everyone is very sad to be opening the last jar.
This was great! I made two batches, the first with green Roma tomatoes I put most of the ingredients in the food processor. This batch was a light orange. Second batch I used the real green tomatoes (Big Boy & Early Girl) and cut up the ingredients into a more chunky size, and cut all the other ingredients by hand also. The texture of this salsa was much more chunky and was very green with red highlights. Both recipes were great and it’s a wonderful way to use up the green tomatoes.
I found this recipe from Pinterest and I cannot believe how good it tastes. I’ve made it once a week for the past 3 weeks. It will definitely be my go to salsa recipe for when I do not make my own with fresh tomatoes. Thanks so much for the recipe!
UPDATE:  I just made a batch using 6 pounds of grape tomatoes.  (You should see the monster plant in my garden!) It worked beautifully and the yield was greater–most likely because there is a lower overall water content. I got exactly 2 quarts and 3 cups of sauce from this batch.
Thank you for this recipe. I have been looking for this recipe for a while now since my brother started making me homemade salsa. I have tried to make my own but it never seems to turn out like I want it. I love the way this is so simple and easy to prepare and I can’t wait to try it because it looks delicious! My husband and I like it hot but if you don’t use all the roasted peppers you can save them for another recipe. It looks perfect!
“I was getting antsy to use something from my garden so I found this recipe and tried it. It was really good. I think I prefer the salsa with ripe tomatoes better, but only because of the tenderness of the tomatoes, I think.”
A step-by-step canning guide to the best homemade salsa on the planet! This is the only salsa I make because it is perfect for eating right away and even better when canned and put on the shelves to enjoy all year long.
Using canning tongs, gently transfer the jars to the canner, taking care to keep them vertical. When all the jars are in the canner, there should be at least 1 inch water covering them; if you need more, add water from the kettle until the jars are sufficiently covered. Bring the water to a full rolling boil, and process for 10 minutes.
Oh my, I have been looking for a salsa recipe since my brother started making me homemade salsa but the few I have tried just didn’t turn out right. This looks so simple and easy and delicious! Can’t wait to try it. I love the way you made it so easy to prepare. Yaynesss, we will never be without to die for roasted salsa again. My husband and I practically drink it according to my brother. HaHa

* In anticipation of your questions about canning this salsa for long-term storage: Salsa recipes are a mix of acid and low-acid ingredients.  To safely can, the salsa must meet acidity-level requirements to prevent the growth of botulism bacteria.  We have not tested this recipe for proper acidity levels, therefore we only recommend that you store this green tomato salsa in the refrigerator and eat within a week to 10 days, or freeze the salsa for longer-term storage. For more information about canning high-acidity foods, click here.
Your basic method for making salsa has become a permanent part of our cuisine. Even though I use vastly different ingredients sometimes, the essential approach is yours. I just made a big batch of salsa verde, completely winging it on the ingredients, but it’s wonderful! Used 2.5 lb tomatillos, 1.75 lb onions, 1.25 lb jalapenos, 13 cloves garlic, a T each of cumin and lime juice, 1 t each of salt and pepper. THANK YOU for introducing me to roasted veggie salsa!
Using tongs, remove tomatoes one at a time from boiling water and immediately drop in ice water. Allow to set for at least one minute before peeling (the skin will come off easily) and scraping out the seeds.
Another delicious recipe! I just used one jalapeño that I had on hand because I didn’t want to leave the house. It was spicy enough for me, but next time I will follow the recipe exactly since I like Serrano peppers for salsa.
Transfer the vegetables to a food processor fitted with a metal blade, along with the salt and cumin. (Note: This is a spicy salsa — you may want to start with one or two peppers in the food processor, and then blend the other(s) in if you want more heat.) Be sure not to skimp on the salt — it brings out all the flavors.
Add the seasonings and bring to a gentle simmer, just to get it hot (180 F, if you have a thermometer). Keeping it at 180 F for 30 minutes prior to water bath processing kills any bacteria and enzymes. Adjust the heat to maintain 180 F and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
It truly is that easy so I only have a couple of images to show you how to make this .. .and they’re all in the collage above.  😀  Dump and go & easy does it will be the nicknames for this tomato salsa.
