Wearing gloves, peel poblano peppers, the blackened skins should come right off. Pull out stem and discard. Cut poblanos open and remove seeds. Finely chop peeled and seeded poblanos. You should have 1 cup, and no more than 1½ cups, again, for canning purposes.

Made this today after seeing it so many times on pintrest. This is definitely awesome! I accidentally halved the salt (which turned out fine) and I think next time I’d half the honey or leave it out completely since I found it a bit sweet. But overall–amazing!

Wow! This recipe is amazing and by far one of the tastiest I’ve had. Certainly won’t last a year…maybe a few months! I have other salsa Recipes I was going to try but no need. This recipe will be the only one I need

4) When it comes to my step-by-step guide below, I have used a steam bath canner to process the salsa. Disclaimer: Even though I prefer to use a steam bath canner (and so do lots of other home canners), many people and resources say there isn’t enough research about steam canners to know if they are safe enough to use.

This roasted salsa verde recipe is so easy to make. Just roast the tomatillos and pepper(s) and blend with a few basic ingredients for the best salsa verde you’ve ever tasted! Recipe yields about 2 ½ cups salsa.

Thanks Cheryl. Glad you loved the salsa. Like you said, the recipe is pretty mild, but that way it’s a safe bet for all. I tend to add more jalapeños myself too, but the baseline recipe is a winner. Thanks for the comment. Come back again and try some other Bald Gourmet treats.

Hi Caitlin – I’m not sure – the method is entirely different with an InstantPot (it uses high pressure to can). I’ve read that the pressure doesn’t get high enough in an InstantPot to safely can foods so you might want to check into that before trying.

I really want to make this salsa but want to use my fresh tomatoes rather than the canned diced and rotel, any suggestions on how to prepare my tomatoes? Can I just chop them up and throw them in fresh or do I need to cook them?? Thanks!!

My boyfriend and I made your salsa the other day…OMG!! We try a new recipe every year because we haven’t found one yet with a WOW factor…until now! Thanks so much for sharing. I just printed about 20 recipes off your website to try. Our search for salsa recipes is finally over, there’s no way you could improve on this one.

We just sampled this salsa and it is absolutely fantastic!!! I thought that all of the ingredients complimented each other. Way to go Mel! This is my third year in a row making red salsa. I make it to enjoy at home and to share with family and I also enter certain canned specialties each year in our local state fair. Two years ago I won Third place for my red salsa. Last year I did not receive a ribbon. This year I suspect I’ll be in good running for ribbon contention! Our North Carolina State Fair is held in October. I’ll be sure to let you know the outcome!

Chop the jalapeno peppers.  If you like your salsa hot, leave the white pith/membranes.  Contrary to popular belief, it’s not the seeds that are hot, it’s the white pith that surrounds them.  It’s always recommended that you use gloves while handling chili peppers.

I rarely do this on a whim but am headed to the store for a few ingredients! I have to try this salsa – thank you! I saw a few posts asking about canning, but do you think this could be frozen? I wonder how it would thaw?

Does it not look like the texture of the salsa in the pic? Also, did you use the grape tomatoes like I have listed? Different tomatoes have different water levels, so that could be it if you used a different tomato than I used.

This was so good and so fast!! I didn’t have rotel on hand so I took another posters advice and used two cans of diced tomatoes and doubled the salt and jalapeno. I WILL be making this exactly as the recipe states because I’m sure it’s delicious as is. I am no longer hungry for the taco’s I was gong to make because of this addicting salsa!

Good morning, Jami. I made your salsa recipe yesterday. One batch only as still waiting on tomatoes to ripen BUT I got 11 half-pints and 1 full pint. Oh my goodness, is it wonderful and very pleasing to look at, as well! 🙂 Love the flavor and the consistency. Tho 8 jalapenos sounds like too much it really isn’t that hot – just a little tang – very nice. I do have to ask why, oh why, in reading your post did I feel impervious to the hazards jalapenos could wreak on your skin?? I ask myself that. Holy Moly – next time I read something you write I will take FULL heed. Side note: I googled and read that paul newman black bean and corn salsa recipe alcohol (among other things) can be used to help neutralize the burn, topically only, of course. Do NOT rinse it off. Again, thank you for sharing such a wonderful, yummy recipe!!

Since many of you have asked about a weight measure for the 10 cups of tomatoes, as I’ve been canning the salsa the last few days, I’ve done a little experimenting/research. Basically, I’ve found it varies GREATLY depending on variety. When I used SIX pounds of Roma + every day garden tomatoes, after taking the skins off, lightly crushing, and draining, the yield of tomatoes to use in this recipe was about 2 1/2 cups. When I used TWO pounds of only Roma/paste tomatoes, after taking the skins off, lightly crushing, and draining, the yield of tomatoes to use was a little over one cup. I tend to err on the side of over draining the tomatoes, if anything, so that makes a difference as well. For me, because I usually use paste tomatoes in this recipe, I would plan on around 18-20 pounds (give or take) of Roma/paste tomatoes to get the 10 cups for this recipe…and even more if using tomatoes with a higher water/lower flesh content.

I love home canned salsa, especially when made from fresh garden tomatoes and peppers out of my garden. But I’ve always been frustrated with these salsas always being runny and thin, even if the recipe calls it chunky. I’ve also been disappointed with the strong vinegar flavor that most home-canned recipes usually have. Comparatively, the store bought stuff is always really thick and chunky, and never has much of a vinegar flavor, but inevitably, it never has a really good fresh tomato flavor. It’s been a lose lose battle for me between store bought and home-canned salsas for years.

This flavorful salsa is almost too pretty to eat. Fresh peaches, tomatoes, and watermelon are tossed in a mixture of pepper jelly, and lime juice for the ultimate summer dish. This recipe is hearty enough to serve alone, or spoon it over your favorite grilled chicken or fish recipe for a quick and easy mealtime stunner. 

I cut this recipie in half and we don’t like green bell peppers but added radishes. Can I do that? Also, in cutting this recipie in half, I used 3 Serrano peppers and 1 jalapeño. I also forgot the tomato sauce as I just didn’t see it and I added 6 oz of tomato paste. I really cut everything in half but as far as changes I’m not sure if they are safe changes or not because I don’t know alot about canning salsa other than I really want to. Can you please help me out?

4Ladle hot into clean, hot jars, leaving ½-inch headspace. Remove air bubbles, adjust headspace if needed, and wipe rims with a dampened clean paper towel. Adjust lids and process 15 minutes using a boiling water bath method. At altitudes of 1000 feet or higher, increase processing time 1 minute for each 1000 feet of altitude.
