this is a fantastic salsa. i did change and add a few things. i cooked a 2lb recipe for 8. i have learned over the years a few things about cooked blender recipes. i put all the ingredients in a blender first and blended it all together. and then cooked the recipe for about 15 min. if you do it this way you do not have to add any water, it makes it's own juices, and comes out just right, not to thick and not to thin (trust me) i did add 2 poblano chile's insted of the other. and i added the juice of 1 lime(really makes a difference)i did add 2 chicken bouillion cubes while cooking, it came out the best fresh salsa that i have had in a long time



I make my own salsa with my tomatoes and can it. I made this to can and changed the water to vinegar. It turned out great. I made enough to can 9 pints. Thanks for the recipe!

I took Judy's advice and added 1/4 c. of lime juice and Ann's advice about using vinegar instead of water so I could home can this. I used 1 cup of vinegar and it was a little too thin but the flavor is incredible. I'll use less vinegar next time or increase the rest of the ingredients so it will be a little thicker. Really flavorful! I'm going to make a pot of Terry's Texas Pinto Beans (on this site) to try it out.
