Does anybody have any good salsa recipes that they would like to share with me? Thanks!
Basic salsa is pretty easy. It's just chili peppers, sweet peppers, tomato and onion. Basic salsa doesn't require any spices, the chili peppers take care of that.

I make kind of a chow chow/salsa mix by pureeing equal parts jalapeno, tomato and onion. It goes good with eggs and meats on flour tortillas. I'm sure there are a lot more variations out there.

3-5 jalapenos is a medium hot salsa.

It is easy to WB = water bath can .. put jars in a stock pot with a lid. cover jars with water.. 1" over top.... boil and start counting once boiling for 15 minutes. Just ask me to make it clear if you have never canned before.

About this time of year walmart will be putting on clearance all or most of there canning supplies. We usually pick up the Ball Salsa mix packets for $.25 a piece. The recipe there is a good one, we add some SUGAR to it and believe it or not it comes out really well.

Also, they'll be reducing the jars from $9. a case to $5. and lids down to $1.

I almost posted the other day about Walmart but thought maybe it was just my Walmart that had canning supplies on clearance. I bought the large canning pot about $10 off and some lids on clearance. It was a clearance aisle not in the homegoods section.

My Mom cans salsa and it's awesome. Here is her recipe. I have never made it, but I have eaten a LOT of it over the years. Although I will add that she never follows the recipe exactly. It's more of a season to taste sort of affair, which means more peppers and more heat.

6 pounds tomatoes (Roma preferred)
1/4 pound tomatoes, chopped
2-2.5 tablespoons garlic powder
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons salt
1 tablespoon ground cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 Red onion, chopped
1 White onion, chopped
1 Yellow onion, chopped
1 pound jalapeno peppers, chopped
1/3 pound green pepper, chopped
1/3 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped

Bring a large pan of water to boil. Place 6 pounds tomatoes into water just to loosen skins and set color. Drain, peel and smash. Mix chopped tomatoes with garlic powder, lemon juice, salt, cayenne pepper and cumin into the saucepan with crushed tomatoes. Whip to desired thickness. Bring to a boil. Mix in red onion, white onion, yellow onion, jalapeno peppers, green pepper and cilantro. Continue boiling until vegetables are soft and mixture has reached desired consistency. Remove from heat.

mine is basic too..I don't measure though. I fill up my little ninja thingy with tomatoes, red onion, cilantro, hot peppers and lime juice. I can eat the whole thing with a big ol' bag of chips...one of my addictions....I like carrot juice too...not together though. And I wouldn't suggest eating hot salsa and chips with mocha java ice cream...you may not sleep well...

This is a great recipe, I made this this morning & I got 7 pints out of it, but I use 8 1/2 cups(only because I had 1/2 cup extra tomato's), so I just dumped it in with the rest....I also omitted the sugar, & may have to cut down on the Peppers :eek:.. but still was a great recipe..thank for the post will be making more of this later... :)

Never cook your salsa, and for better flavor try roasting the peppers first specially the poblano ones and tomatoes should be ripe also removed the tomatoes skins. Let the salsa rest for a few hours before using it will help with the flavor.

My Best Salsa!

Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
3 1/2 pounds tomatoes -- chopped
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/4 cup (4 each) chopped seeded jalapeño pepper (seeds in for more heat)
3/4 cup white vinegar (5% acidity)
1 can tomato sauce - (15 oz)
1 teaspoon minced garlic
½ teaspoon salt
1 bunch chopped cilantro
¼ teaspoon of cumin

Combine all ingredients in a large nonaluminum Dutch oven; bring to a boil
over medium-high heat, stirring often. Reduce heat, and simmer, stirring
often, 40 minutes or until thickened. Use a hand blender (boat motor) for desired consistency.

Pour into hot jars, filling to 1/2 inch from top. Remove air bubbles;
wipe jar rims. Cover at once with metal lids, and screw on bands.
Process 15 minutes in boiling-water bath.

This recipe yields 8 half-pints.

Pineapple Salsa

2 Cups Pineapple, diced into small pieces
½ Cup red onion, chopped
1/8 to ½ cup chopped cilantro, to taste
1 lime, zest and juice
1 serrano chili, seeds removed, diced super small
½ Teaspoon salt (and up to an additional ½ Teaspoon)*

* The amount of salt you use will depend on your tastes and the sweetness of your pineapple. The idea is to
achieve a perfect balance of sweet and savory. The salt should really bring out the flavor of the other ingredients,
without making the salsa taste salty. Start with ½ teaspoon and then when you taste it later on, after the flavors
have melded, you can decide to add up to another ½ teaspoon to get it perfect.

For a change of pace and really good
