I made this and doubled the recipe. I did not get the 8 pints I was planning on. When I was making it, it seemed really thick and like not enough, so I added 3 cups of water to get a better consistency and volume. Then I added the lime juice, and boy, it tasted sour at first, but mellowed a bit as it simmered. In the end, I only got six pints. I think my tomatillos didn’t give off enough juice or something? I’ll have to try this again, but I’m thinking I may need more tomatillos for this recipe next time.
Thanks for the comment! The salsa will keep at least through the week so you should be fine to make it ahead. The honey is optional and feel free to use as little or as much as you’d like to get it how you like it!
Tomatoes, garlic, and peppers are charred on all sides then added to onion, cilantro, and lime for a flavorful and addictive tomato salsa recipe. Jump to the Roasted Tomato Salsa Recipe or read on to see our tips for making it.
We promise you’ll always want to go back for more. This is a riff on our Roasted Salsa Verde.  There has been so much positive feedback for it, that we decided to try the same recipe, but use red tomatoes instead of using tomatillos.
This is my first year to can tomatoes, and when I hot water bathed them I only did it for 10 minutes instad of the 25+ minutes. I heard all the lids pop, my question is, will they be OK or do I need to redo them?
9. Process jars in a hot water bath. For those of you who aren’t canners…this is the large canning pot (not a pressure cooker). You fill it with enough water to cover all of the jars when submerged, and then you bring it to a roaring boil. Once the boiling starts, you put the lid on and allow the jars to boil. Quarts should process 35-40 minutes and pints 25-30 minutes.

This was too spicy for me (not mild!) and very vinegar-y! I know the acidity is important, but tomatoes seem pretty acidic on their own, right? I’ll stick to my old recipe (which is time tested from my mother in law, but I’m not sure if it’s officially approved by a lab) but I do like your skin slip method. Took longer than 3 min for mine. And the less ripe store-bought Romas didn’t really slip off. Garden ones did, but they weren’t Romas.
It’s not mild if you follow the recipe exactly, but if you remove the seeds from the peppers or substitute a milder pepper I think it will work. My wife is not shy about spice but thought the heat was too much even if the flavor was marvelous. I’m cooking a second batch as I write this with two jalapeno peppers (seeds included) and a poblano for 1.5 pounds of tomatillos. I think she’s going to love it, but you may have to experiment to get it right for you. It’s a marvelous flavor and worth a couple tries.
Just made it using Walmart fire tomatoes and fresh jalapeños. Also added dash of olive oil and a pinch of sugar. Doubt I will ever buy jar salsa again. You can definitely make this using a different variety of canned tomatoes. I even thought of adding black beans and corn. Great recipe.
Hi Lenora, I didn’t develop this recipe with canning in mind (and I know very little about canning), so while I don’t know for sure that it’s unsafe for canning, I don’t feel confident telling you that it would be safe. Sorry!
Remove the tomatoes (from water, grill or broiler) and let cool to the touch. Remove and discard the peels. Cut away any cores if you haven’t done so already. Chop the tomatoes taking care to save any juices that may come out of them.
Fantastic recipe here! I made this for a family salsa contest for Mother’s Day and it took second place. The only difference is that I went with jalepeno, serrano and poblano peppers and then doubled the recipe. My husband couldnt get enough of it!
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.
I have made batches and batches of this salsa. I can’t bring myself to buy store bought and I was relieved to see how easy it is. Most of the time I do not modify this recipe. However, my father is an avid gardener and loves to grow spicy peppers in a dozen different varieties. He convinced me to put about half of one of his smoked habaneros in a batch and it was amazing! For me the smokiness really brought out the sweetness of the roasted veggies. This one is definitely a winner.
* – This assumes you already have the pots, pans, ladles, and reusable equipment. Note that you can reuse the jars!  Many products are sold in jars that will take the lids and rings for canning.  For example, Classico spaghetti sauce is in quart sized jars that work with Ball and Kerr lids and rings
Not a bad recipe definitely cut the vinegar to 1/2 or 1/3 cup. 3/4 is too much. I added about 1tsp cumin, 1 tsp black pepper, 1 tbsp sugar(to cut the acid in the tomatoes and counteract the vinegar. Would leave the sugar out next time when reducing the vinegar more) and 2 small cans of tomato paste to thicken. I used a stick blender to get a finer consistency.
