Put the tomatoes in boiling water about a minute and then immediately submerge them in ice water for easy peeling. As you can see, the skins loosen from the tomato. Peel your tomatoes for fresh tomato salsa to can.
Ok. I made the salsa yesterday and threw a jar into the fridge due to an improper seal. I spooned some of the salsa onto my avocado and eggs tonight, and it was divine. I had told myself just one day spent on making salsa, but I may make it two:)
This quick-and-easy salsa tastes great as an accompaniment to meat dishes as well as with chips. I teach kindergarten and my husband is a county Extension agent. We’ve lived down here in the Imperial Valley for 30 years. I say “down here” because Holtville is 15 feet below sea level!
Salsa verde is a versatile Latin condiment. Serve it over tacos, grilled steak or fish, or even hot dogs. Use it to make enchiladas or flavorful slow-cooker chicken. Of course, there’s always the option to eat it plain with tortilla chips!
And when you’re hosting a party, have you ever noticed that the chips and salsa are the first foods to disappear? No matter how many fancy side salads, dips, or canapés folks set out, the chips and salsa are inevitably the most popular. You just can’t go wrong with the simple combo, and today I’ve upped the game. With a fresh and easy homemade salsa, you’ll never go back to the jarred store-bought version again!
Good morning Cheryl. If you’re looking for thick salsa, you’ve come to the right place! Our salsa is thick and tasty! The extra effort is well worth the results. There isn’t any reason you couldn’t use a pressure canner with this recipe. Let us know how it turns out.
Even so, a pressure canner affords greater safety that a boiling water bath, and is more versatile. But if you follow my recipe and use vinegar or lemon juice as stated in the recipe, the boiling water bath will work fine.
I have canned a lot of salsa throughout the years with great success. This year I was looking for a recipe that was thick and a little crunchy and fresh tasting. The recipe is excellent and there’s no need to change a thing unless you want a hotter salsa. I can’t recommend the recipe enough!!! Thank you!!!
This healthy take on the traditional chips-and-salsa combo is nearly fat-free and super-refreshing. The antioxidant-rich salsa is delicious served right after it’s made, but the flavors meld nicely after a day or two in the refrigerator.
Back in 1991, the favorite topper for tacos, enchiladas, burritos and undisputed champion tortilla chip dip surpassed the French fry’s best friend and never looked back. In an increasingly food-savvy nation, the many varieties of salsa add up to big business.
Cooking it in the slow cooker allows all of the fresh veggies to blend together and bring out the flavor. The veggies soften and create the best salsa EVER! I love the this recipe makes a lot of salsa and you are able to can it, or give it to your neighbors.
Yum! I can’t wait until our garden veggies are ready! We planted 3 kinds of peppers, 3 different tomatoes, cucumber, zucchini, 2 types of squash, lettuce, peas, green beans, and pumpkins! The hubs also hss several raspberry, blackberry, and blueberry bushes, and 3 grape vines! Hoping to make some wine 🙂
Freezer salsa may not look as fresh and perky as fresh salsa, but it’s definitely a viable alternative to canning. There will be some watery liquid after it’s thawed. It’s really not a big deal. If you want to serve the salsa for chip dipping, simply drain off the liquid. If you’re using the salsa in a cooked recipe, just use as is.
i stumbled across this and was drawn to the natural ingredients, but is so expensive to make, i usually make salsa with jarred tomatoes but i went to trader joes and got three pounds of tomatoes to make this, it just didn’t taste that great to be honest, it tasted very fresh but not really like salsa like i’m used to, and mine was also a pinker color
I tried this recipe for the first this year (and also my first time canning food). I followed the instructions but I only got one jar and a half (1L jar though). Is that normal? If not, what did I did wrong? The taste is very good though. I just wish I could have more cans of salsa!
Love this recipe! Thank you for sharing!!! Hoping to make the salsa a little bit thicker this year. Can I add tomato paste to thicken? Or would I need to increase the ACV in it? If so, how much more ACV should I put in?

Thank you for sharing this recipe. We love it. And, I cannot tell you how excited we are to begin canning, today, for the coming year. I have to admit that we are thrilled to be making only this recipe. Needless say – so are our tasters!
Made this today with my remaining garden tomatoes, roasting the tomatoes, garlic, and onions as directed. Within just a few seconds of pulsing in the food processor, the mixture turned to complete soup. I mean, there was just no salvaging a salsa type of consistency out of it. The spices are nice and I’m going to use it to make a cream of tomato soup tomorrow, but wanted to warn others who may be really needing a salsa end product. And maybe you have some tips for ensuring this doesn’t happen?
