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.

Cook's Notes:

Yellow bell pepper can be substituted for the green bell pepper, if desired.

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.

This is an excellent recipe. Close to one I use but mine didn't call for bell pepper. I found the bell pepper really added to the taste. Too I use a can of diced tomato/chile pepper (Rotel) rather than tomato sauce. Next time I make this I'll go back to that simply because I like the heat. This is a very adaptable recipe where one can add or reduce the ingredient portions depending on their taste. If you don't have a go to salsa recipe this is a very good place to start. Many thanks for a fine recipe Big Nanc. Read More
