My Best Salsa

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"I found this recipe a couple of years ago and I've tweaked and changed it until we felt it was just right. I get requests all the time for the recipe. My family loves it, hope you enjoy also! I don't can, so I use quart freezer bags and freeze."

  1. Combine onions, tomato sauce, green bell pepper, jalapeno peppers, tomato paste, vinegar, garlic, cumin, salt, and black pepper together in a saucepan; bring to a slow boil for 15 minutes. Stir cilantro into salsa and remove saucepan from heat.


  • Cook's Notes:

  • Substitute 1 tablespoon dried cilantro for the 1/2 cup fresh, if desired.
  • If you like a salsa that's not so chunky, you can pulse a couple of times in a blender.
