Homemade Salsa

*If you like recipes like these be sure to stop by my new E-cookbook E-licious and use code SALSA50 to get the book 50% off ,making it only $2.50 for over 45 recipes!*

This recipe came from my Granny.  Literally, she told me over the phone and I have it scribbled down on a scrap piece of paper. I haven’t misplaced it because it is the best homemade cooked salsa I have ever eaten.  Trust me, that’s saying something.  I live in Texas and eat Mexican food at least once a week.  Seriously, I know my salsa.  A great thing about this recipe is that you can use what you have.  If you like Anaheim peppers or banana peppers go ahead use them, tweak it to your liking.  Chunky, smooth, hot, mild, it’s your salsa, have fun with it.  This recipe makes about 4-5 quart jars and, even so, they never seem to last longer than a few weeks in our household. So you can easily skip the canning part and just stick them straight in the fridge to use within a month.

All the fresh veggies in this recipe (except for the onions) are courtesy of hubby DT and his wonderful veggie garden.  This recipe is excellent with garden veggies or store bought and it’s super simple to make.

Ingredients: 3 quarts tomatoes (fresh or canned), 3 cups onions, 3 cups bell peppers, 1/2 cup banana peppers (optional), 1/3 cup vinegar, 1/4 cup sugar, 3 T canning salt (regular salt is fine), 3-4 jalapenos (or more if you like it extra spicy)

Chop your tomatoes to your preference.  I like a chunky salsa so I chopped them pretty big, if not chop into small pieces.

I am using the varieties of tomatoes we planted this year.  We have standard celebrity, medium sized delicious red tomatoes, lemon boy, the ripe yellow tomatoes, and my new favorites the yellow pear tomatoes.  See those little cute pear shaped tomatoes?  Aren’t they cute?  That, and they are sweet as can be.

Measure and add all the chopped tomatoes to a large stock pot

Dice onions and add to pot

Then dice your bell peppers, start by cutting the top off

Then pop out the stem and seeds and discard.

then cut the pepper in half, and then in julienne strips

and then again cross way to dice.

Next cut the tops off of the banana peppers and dice the same as bell peppers

*these are optional, but delicious.

add the peppers to the stock pot

Next the jalapenos.

If you have sensitive fingers like me always wear gloves.  Though oddly enough, I always forget to wear gloves and inevitably touch my eyes hours later and they still burn.

*with gloves on*

Cut the tops off the jalapenos and cut lengthwise.

Then scrape the seeds and white membrane out with a spoon

*note no gloves, trust me I paid for this later.

Then stack the two pieces on top of each other

and julienne

then dice and add to the pot.

Then add 1/4 cup sugar

and 1/3 cup vinegar

and 3 Tablespoons salt

Stir well and set to medium high heat

Stir every few minutes

Turn off once onions are translucent, and peppers are a dull green, about 15-20 minutes.

Also, taste a few of the onions and bell peppers to make sure they are completely cooked and al dente.

If you like a smoother salsa, use a stick blender.

It smells so good while it’s cooking, just try to refrain from eating it while its still hot, I know we can’t.

Serve with chips, or on your favorite dish. Enjoy!

Homemade Salsa

3 quarts tomatoes (canned diced tomatoes is fine)

3 cups onions

3 cups bell peppers

1/3 cup vinegar

1/4 cup sugar

3 Tablespoons canning salt (regular salt is fine)

3-4 jalapenos (or more if you like it extra spicy)

Guess what?? We have a few tiny baby zucchinis starting to grow!! I nearly peed in my pants when I saw them…the kids were screaming they were so excited!! Nothing else is growing yet but the baby zucchinis made my day! I’ll have to take a pic and post them!

Renee November 17, 2009 at 4:05 pm

I never made salsa before but would like to try it. When you say to can in quart jars & refrigerate—do you give it a hot water bath after it is in the jars or is cooking it the same as if you would give it a hot water bath?? Also, do the jars seal or is that why rou keep it in the frige?? See, I’m a newby at this! I can pickles but have always been afraid to do tomatoes. Thanks!

[Reply]

Tracey Kessler Reply:

@Renee, Renee, i posted how i do it but just wanted to make sure you got it. put your jars in the sink with boiling water to sterilize along with lids and seals, take them out and add hot salsa while jars are still hot. put lids and on and turn upside down until the next day, when you check them they will be sealed and won’t need refrigeration, (as long as you have vinegar or some sort of acidity in the jar.) hope this helps.

Tracey Kessler June 22, 2010 at 11:05 am

you can sterilize the jars and then poor it in while hot and seal the jars. No one seems to do this anymore, but my mom always made chili sauce and jarred it. and it satyed on a shelf all winter. Never any problems, just have to make sure the jars seal.:) i’m anxious to try this:)

[Reply]

Tracey Kessler June 24, 2010 at 10:27 am

I made this last night but i tweaked it a little, it turned out fantastic, I just sterilized my jars, poured in hot salsa, sealed and put upside down(like my mother told me:))overnight, and about three hrs later everything was sealed:) my daughter asked if she could have chips and salsa for breakfast this morning lol:)

Barb June 29, 2010 at 12:48 pm

I have looked at alot of receipes and this one sounds the best. Someone told me to go to wal-mart and buy a packet of seasoning to add to it ,do i need to do that?

Rowdy July 23, 2010 at 11:16 am

just made two batches of it… i tweaked it a bit by using our garden tomatoes, but boy did it turn out wonderful…THANK YOU!!

Hi – I’ve looked at a lot of recipes, and this seems great and easy! If canning to keep – can you do this without a water bath? Just pouring in the boiling salsa? THANKS!!

[Reply]

Sheri August 23, 2010 at 11:47 am

I’ve always used the mixes for canning my salsa but they never tasted quite fresh enough. I had a whole mess of tomatoes, and peppers from my garden so when I saw your recipe I decided I wanted to make a healthier and tastier salsa. I tweeked it a little bit, adding chopped green chilies instead of the jalapenos, and chopped red onion instead of white. I also added a little bit of lime juice, cilantro, and garlic. and white vinegar instead of cider vinegar. It was fantastic. I canned it and my one son (I too am the mother of grown twins) came to the house and started eating it right out of the kettle before I even got it in the jars and canned. Quodos and thank you for the out of this world salsa recipe. This is my go to recipe from now on!

I also would like to thank you for this extremely tasty salsa recipe. I was on the hunt for a good one and what your salsa called for was exactly what I wanted in mine.

Since I know that the balance of vinegars, etc is important to the safety in canning, I wondered if you have any recipe suggestions for making a salsa for canning with the addition of black beans and corn? I had store bought one that was really good, but would like to make my own. Thanks, Mary

[Reply]

Chris May 5, 2011 at 7:45 pm

I have done this Salsa 5 times not and EVRY time it has come out PERFECT! Word to the wise, for best results I use the BEST Jalapino peppers I can find. Of course the fresher the ingrediants the better, but the “BITE” comes from the best peppers. GREAT RECIPE

Julie Floyd July 14, 2011 at 5:03 am

I made this recipe twice last year. I sold many of the jars that I canned at my farm market. I also gave lots of jars away. It took me days to find this website again since you are not the number one hit for salsa recipes. But you should be. This is THE BEST salsa recipe on the web today. I am getting ready to put my apron on and make tons of this stuff. I should have about 50 jars when I am finished.
And this time I m adding you to my favorites so I can find you easier.

I tried you salsa recipe and I loved it, I only made two changes….I added minced garlic and nacho cheese, so now I have cheesy salsa!! YUM!! I am now on the second batch but I will not be adding cheese to this batch. Thanks for posting such a great recipe. 😉

Side note::: I use my salsa in our spaghetti, lasagna, as a sauce for pizza, etc.

I was looking for a recipe for homemade salsa and came across your beautiful posting. I’m a 20-plus year old single man (20 + 51!) and am not all that handy around the kitchen. I had a BUMPER crop of tomatoes this year here in central Minnesota, and love salsa, and was wondering what I could do with all those tomatoes.

Your descriptions and wonderful photos will be so helpful, not just for the salsa, but for other cooking I’d like to do also. You can be very proud of the nice job you did with your recipe!! Thank you very much. —Al

Hi and thanks for sharing this recipe. I love the pictures describing step by step of the process. I like to make a spicy salsa and was wondering if I could replace the bell peppers for serrano chiles or if this will affect the result. Also, can I can this salsa? Regards

Renee M. June 24, 2012 at 7:03 pm

Thank you so much for sharing this recipe! I just wanted to know if you have made more than enough before and put it away for later use. Any recommendations on storing it?

[Reply]

Sweet Pea Reply:

Either save in fridge for eating within 2 weeks or process in quart jars in a water bath for 5-10 minutes until jars are sealed and will be shelf stable. I actually haven’t personally canned this recipe, because we always eat it so fast. But I’ve had others have great success canning this recipe, look in the comments section.

[Reply]

Barbara Hamilton July 19, 2012 at 12:12 pm

I just picked a bumper crop of tomatoes from my garden, along with banana peppers! I am not a fan of cilantro, so my google search led me to your recipe! I am also not a fan of bell peppers, but LOVE banana, hot peppers, etc. Do you have a suggestion if I wanted to omit the bell peppers?

[Reply]

Sweet Pea Reply:

Barbara- Yes just substitute the banana peppers for the bell peppers. I have done this before and it comes out fantastic!

[Reply]

Kathy Cameron August 1, 2012 at 3:56 pm

I just came across your recipe and am anxious to try it. I wonder if it would be safer to pressure can it instead of water bath canning it. Some of the vegetables in it are low acid and I am not sure that the 1/2 cup of vinegar is enough to raise the acidity of the recipe to make it safe from botulism. Modern tomatoes are also lower acid. Other salsa recipes that I have used recommend pressure canning the jars for 25 minutes at 15psi. I have a background in microbiology and when I can and preserve foods I try to make sure that I am doing it safely.

[Reply]

Sweet Pea Reply:

Hi Kathy, absolutely use your pressure canner. I have never canned this recipe before, but I know others have with great success, but please do what you feel most comfortable with. Hope you enjoy the recipe.

i just made this recipe it made so much i cleaned out two jars from fridge and cleaned them out in hot water and filled the clean jars full then put the cleaned lids on and let sit for an hour or two to cool if i put in the fridge and keep it in the fridge will i be ok .letting it cool with the lids on on the counter for an hour or two or will this cause any problems with botchalism

This is our first year with a garden and we have so many tomatoes we dont know what to do with them all. I found this recipe and tried it and loved it! Is it possible to make large batches and freeze instead of canning? If so how long will it keep in the freezer.

[Reply]

Sweet Pea Reply:

@katy, Katy I am not sure about it in the freezer, as I haven’t tried it. But I have frozen tomatoes whole and had great success, so maybe you could try that. And then make the salsa when your ready for it. If you are worried about it making too much, you could always cut the recipe in half. http://www.newlyweds-blog.com/2010/07/05/freezing-tomatoes/

[Reply]

Karen September 8, 2012 at 8:31 am

I had my doubts about adding 3 Tablespoons of salt. Seemed like too much. And it was way too much salt. Don’t know if that measurement is correct or not.

[Reply]

Sweet Pea Reply:

So sorry it was too much salt for your liking. But the recipe is correct and that is the way I’ve been making it for years. Always seemed like the perfect amount to me. And the beauty of making your own is you can make it how you like it. You can always add some no salt added canned tomatoes to it if you feel it’s too salty.

Beth August 5, 2013 at 7:15 pm

This is by far the best recipe ever. I have been making this for the past 3-4 years and have people begging for me to give them jars of homemade salsa. I can’t say that it turns out the same each year because I usually eyeball everything. I also at tomatillos, and make sure I have a good portion of yellow and orange tomatoes. The kids love it. I’ll be making and canning mine tomorrow. It’s an all day thing because I make numerous quarts and pints to give away and so that we have plenty to last a year until I make it again. I eyeball the salt to but make sure I “taste” it before it gets too salty. I’ve never had a problem with spoilage, so I guess I’ve done something right. I process them longer, probably 20-30 minutes. Thanks for sharing this.

Tried this today and love it! I used home grown tomatoes and added cilantro, garlic and 1 tsp. of cumin. We prefer a smooth salsa, so ok put it in the blender and just pulsed it a few time before I poured in canning jars. This recipe is a keeper.
