“fresh tomato salsa recipe without cilantro easy tomato salsa recipe”

This might be the easiest salsa you’ll ever make: toss some piquant ingredients in a blender, give them a blitz, and you’re basically done. All it needs is a basket full of warm salty tortilla chips. Even better, because it doesn’t require the season’s sweetest juiciest tomatoes, you can make this recipe any time of year. Don’t turn your nose up at canned tomatoes. Because they’re picked and canned during their peak season, they’re a great bet in winter, spring, or fall, or anytime you get a chips-n-salsa craving.
If you don’t see lovely tomatoes at the store you can always use canned tomatoes. I am a fresh tomato kind of girl but if you do used canned tomato- grab a 28 oz can of whole tomato and from what I understand Rotel brand is the way to go.  You can use smaller cans of tomatoes and mix and match flavors to keep things exciting.
Samantha, it really depends on the tomatoes. We started with really red ripe tomatoes. If the tomatoes are a little more pale the salsa tends to be on the orange side. It will be just as tasty though. Cheers!
I’m so excited to have found your yummy and easy recipe! I have a garden that just produced 5 different kinds of tomatoes today and I wanted to use them up. I had about 5 pounds which was pretty close. I also added my sweet peppers. I loved using our good blender for the two batches, so easy! It’s cooking on the stove now and smells delicious. Thanks for the recipe! I shared it on fb too!
Pineapple-Cucumber Salsa offers refreshing flavor with a little bite. Serve as a topping to our Mini Crab Cakes. This tropical topping also pairs beautifully with flaky white fish or grilled chicken. We also love serving it as a refreshing condiment for tacos. 
I think it’s ok (as in safe) to substitute lemon or lime juice for the vinegar, if you don’t care for the flavor. Keep the proportions, though. If the recipe calls for 1 cup of vinegar, substitute 1 cup of lemon.
But that doesn’t mean that you’ll have to head to the local mexican restaurant every time you want to be able to enjoy fresh salsa! With some simple ingredients, a bit of know-how, and a food processor, you’ll be able to make amazing salsa right in your own kitchen. Here are five DIY recipes to help keep your salsa cravings in check while at home.
I used this recipe for my first time making salsa with tomatoes and hot peppers from our garden. I used vidalia onions to add a little sweetness and also a little black pepper cumin (about 1/4 tsp each). I took the advice of some of the other reviewers and reduced the vinegar to 1/2 cup and added 1 tbs tomato paste. Who wants to buy salsa from the jar with a recipe like this?
Have been making salsa for many years,always a different recipe. Mel this recipe is the bomb. You can’t buy salsa this good. Only thing I changed was adding more jalapenos with seeds. Got rave reviews from family and friends. Thank you.
Once the veggies are tender and have started to blister slightly, remove them from the oven and allow them to cool down a bit.  I will warn you that the aroma is going to be pretty overwhelming (in a good way) and your house might smell like your favorite Mexican restaurant. You are welcome!
My whole point is, if you have a good blender or food processor, making salsa at home is a total snap. It’ll keep in the fridge for as long as it’ll last (which is never very long, in my experience) and is absolutely worth every second of effort.
I’ve read so many forums on this dang salsa recipe (it originated on the gardenweb forum) and to be honest, I’m not sure. There are a lot of people that say don’t deviate from the recipe for food safety and others say the tomato paste and tomato sauce can be optional because mostly you just want a mixture that sloshes around freely (if it’s too thick, apparently it can’t be heated through well enough to prevent bacteria from growing). My gut feeling says you are ok…but you’ll just want to use your best judgment.
This is a very good salsa recipe. Simple ingredients are boiled and blended to created a flavorful, spicy mixture that’s great with tortilla chips and on Mexican-style foods. The amounts of onions and jalapenos may be varied; canned crushed tomatoes may be substituted for fresh.
My Favorite Salsa Ever: The texture is somewhere between chunky and thin. There are lots of small pieces of veggies suspended in the liquid base. I think what makes this really fantastic is the fresh and spicy flavor, similar to pico de gallo. Now I keep a batch in the fridge at all times. Recipe found at Annie’s Eats.
Editor’s note: Chef Roberto Santibañez, the chef/owner of Fonda in Brooklyn, New York shared this recipe as part of a festive taco party menu he created for Epicurious. He recommends serving this salsa with his Carnitas or Carne Adobada Tacos .
Preheat a grill to medium high. Make the salsa: Combine the tomatoes, lime juice, sugar and 1 teaspoon salt in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave 2 minutes, then stir in the cilantro, red onion and jalapeno; set aside.

  • So sorry you found it too spicy. As mentioned in the comments above, there can be a lot of variation in heat in peppers of the same variety. The best way to go is to roast 3 peppers and blend them in one at a time until you are happy with the heat.
    I know that this is an old post, however, I just found it while doing a search for stewed tomatoes. I’m so happy I found your recipe! It’s exactly like the way my great-grandmother used to make hers! It was so delicious! I used to love it when she served it over mashed potatoes! Yummm!
    We love this recipe and have been making it for several years. One variation we like is to add some canned chipotle peppers to give it some smoke flavor. We buy the small can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce and chop up a few chipotles and add while cooking. We also add the tomatoe paste to make it a bit thicker. We can around 150 1/2 pints each season and make several different variations by changing the types of peppers to make some milder and some hotter. We get the most compliments on the ones with the chipotles.
