Haha… I love it! I will definitely try lime next time, but I don’t think my husband will let me leave the cumin out. He loves that stuff. Glad you enjoyed the recipe and be sure to try it again when you can get garden fresh tomatoes!
I have done salsa for quite a few years but I never cook mine down I just bottle it fresh into hot bottles and then water bath it for 30 minutes. I haven’t had any trouble with my salsa or any one die but now I am concerned because every receipe I read cooks it down. What do you think
This chunky, smoky salsa tastes amazing with tortilla chips. Roasted tomatoes, garlic, onion and jalapeno are blended with cilantro and cumin to create one of the tastiest and easiest Mexican-inspired recipes you’ll ever try.
My brother made this for thanksgiving for a potluck. I have canned many salsas over the years, and this was the best I’ve ever had. Thank goodness the weather is cooperating in southern Ontario and romas are still very plentiful for picking. I will be making my own batch tonight. Thanks for the great recipe
Love it! made some just now and just added extra jalapeno. and used rotel with cilantro and lime. also used some lemon juice since I didn’t want to use my dad corona limes haha. all the same though it turned out great! 🙂
I like to keep a big jar of the homemade salsa in my refrigerator for up to a week. I serve the chips and salsa with quick weeknight dinners like quesadillas or tacos, and Keith loves them as a side with his sandwiches at lunch. The kids even dip veggies in the salsa for afternoon snacks. I’m not exaggerating when I say that this is truly a kitchen staple — whether we’re hosting a party or not!
Dunderhead here. I forgot to skin the tomatoes. They are all cut up and draining. Do you think it will work? Can I skim the skins off during the boil? Or just pitch and begin the correct way. That’s the problem with a 71 YO. Thanks for the assist.

[…] For one thing, salsa is serious business around here. I may have mentioned my Tostitos addiction at some point? And runny food processor made salsa is not going to cut it. I’m sorry, it’s just not. This recipe is the best homemade salsa EVER. […]
PROCESS both pint and half pint jars in a boiling water canner for https://great-salsa.com/category/mexican-food/ minutes, adjusting for altitude. Remove jars and cool. Check lids for seal after 24 hours. Lid should not flex up and down when center is pressed.
I canned these in a water bath without a problem. Throwing all my other salsa recipes away… And THANK YOU for the broiler skinning method!! I’ve been telling all my friends about it! Way easier than using all that water.
Let’s take this salsa, for example. It was originally a component in a healthier seven-layer dip concept, but the salsa blew the dip out of the water. One part, on its own, was so much better than the other six combined. Then, I made it a couple more times, with the same ingredients, but each time, it tasted a little different.
