I give this five stars only after revising the recipe as follows: increase chopped tomatoes to 1 gallon reduce jalapenos to 3 chopped jalapeno peppers. increase onions to 2 cups add 1 tablespoon of sugar add one box frozen sweetcorn increase garlic powder to 2 tablespoons bring to boil and reduce heat to simmer uncovered for 2 to 3 hours stirring regularly. One hour before completion add two 12 oz cans of tomato paste and stir in well. Cook until salsa is thick enough for your taste and just before removing from the heat add 1/2 cup of a dry red wine. This will can well and also freezes well. Add more peppers to give it more kick or stir in hot sauce before serving for those who like more heat...


Although it's not a quick Salsa to make it is really worth the wait. I spooned out half of the batch and let the other half continue an extra hour and it was indeed spicier. Looking forward to some sport events to try this again.


I have modified this recipe to my liking. I have added 1 tsp of hickory smoke seasoning(liquid) and 1 cayenne pepper chopped really fine and also substituted a regular red pepper along with the geen pepper to this recipe.Also use 1/2 the vinegar and I used white vinegar .Now I like this recipe.Great recipe to try and play with. !!!!!!!!!!!
