Made this recipe today and it was our first attempt at salsa from homegrown veggies from our garden. Very easy to follow the directions and it is delicious. We already planning our second batch. Thnx
OMG! Sooooooooo good, my family begs for this! I grew the peppers this summer just for this recipe! I’ve been making it since I found it here awhile ago! Thanks Kelley! I’m putting this on my Christmas gift list! It’s so easy to make that you could make it right before the holidays along with some pretty packaged chips and some specialty beer! Wow! I’m going to give myself that gift!!! 🙂

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.
Use your jar lifter to place the jars into the canner leaving space in between them. Once jars are all in canner, adjust the water level so it is at least one inch above the jar tops. Add more boiling water if needed so the water level is at least one inch above the jar tops. When adding water, use the hot water from the small pot your lids were in. Pour the water around the jars and not directly onto them.
Yes, this is the best I have made via canning! My husband and kids ate it up very quickly and now I have a recipe to use for all my tomatoes! Thanks for the great tutorial on how to skin the tomatoes! That really worked great! My search for finding a yummy canned salsa recipe is finally over!! Whew!! You da best!!
I freeze tomatoes all the time, it is my simple way of peeling them, once they are thawed the peel comes right off. I have been canning 30 plus years. I freeze as I pick them and make 1 huge batch rather than several little batches.
I used the pressure canner and after the timer went off and the canner cooled (decompressed too) I pulled out the jars and noticed the head space was way bigger . I let them cool over night and now I see like moisture on the inside of the jars where the extra head space is. Is the salsa still safe to eat?
The directions with this salsa recipe state: Process 35 minutes. Now that I’ve updated yesterday’s canning tomatoes post with correct, safe information (you should check it out for sure), I would recommend finding a board-approved salsa recipe online and using their processing times. For me, I’m going to process 35 minutes for pints and 40 for quarts and call it good, but I’m crazy like that.
Unfortunately, sometimes super healthy means super hard to make. You might be thinking, “Ugh, seriously? All that chopping? It will take forever. Forget it! I’m going to the store to by some salsa in a jar.”
Thanks for the tip. I have planted 36 roma tomato plants and many pepper plants. My family and friends are looking forward to salsa again this year. I plan on making this great recipe again. Many thanks. Lillian
You can simply cut the peppers in large chunks and put them in a food processor to do the rest, or chop them by hand. I like the way the processor chops them mostly fine, but also leaves a few larger pieces so that there are some peppers in every spoonful.
Hi just came across this recipe and will try but wondering if anyone has added fresh corn to the recipe??? I have corn from the garden I could use.. cant wait to try this……. I wish I wasn’t busy I want to try this today…..
No, sorry, I haven’t. Skinning 22 pounds of tomatoes without blanching sounds like a pain in the backside. I know some folks skip peeling and just chop up the tomatoes. If you don’t mind more chewy salsa and skin bits, that would be another option.
I JUST made this!! Oh my gosh! I have always wanted to make my own salsa. It is the best ever. Better than any restaurant and I added a touch more garlic and cilantro just because I love them both but other than that, stuck to the recipe above! Delicious!
A note from Tiffany: This is a post from contributing writer, Rachael. It’s been a while since she’s had a recipe post for us, but she is the one who puts everything together for the Traditional version of the Weekly Meal Plans. Rachael and her family lost their home to fire on Saturday. Thankfully, they are all safe. Please keep Rachael, her husband and their two little ones in your prayers. They are hanging on to this verse. “Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”
Add just 1/4 cup chopped onion to the bowl. This doesn’t seem like a lot, considering that in my Pico de Gallo recipe, I preach and preach about how important it is for the onion to receive equal billing with the tomatoes. But for this salsa, it’s best to go subtle with the onions.
Why canned tomatoes? Quality canned tomatoes are picked at their peak and stay that way. If you can find fire roasted tomatoes awesome…if not this will still be delicious! You can always use the bounty from your garden in place of canned…that works as well!
I went back to the store and bought a fresh onion and the cumin — I didn’t want to risk it! 🙂 I’m afraid the frozen onion just wouldn’t do the salsa justice. I’m getting ready to go make it right now! Thanks so much, Kelley!!
Just tried this salsa recipe tonight. First time making salsa actually. If I had known how easy it was and good it turn out, I should have made some much sooner. Thanks for the recipe. This is definitely a keeper.
Tried more than a few salsa recipes out there and tried a couple batches of this one this weekend. Really good balance of heat and acid but added a bit more peppers and onion (used red and white cuz I like lots of goodies in my salsa). Left out the tomato sauce on the second batch and still was great (used the paste for both batches). Used some perfect field toms (well drained) and will try with roma’s next. This is a GREAT salsa and now my “go to” recipe! thanks!
I just want to let you know this is now my go to recipe for salsa. My husband says I’ve ruin him for ever eating jar salsa again after eating this and it’s my summer go to recipe when I have guests come iver swimming. Thx for sharing I’ve been using this recipe for two years now and it’s a real crowd pleaser and no fail!
A. Well, Grandma may be sweet, but a lot of her generation died of cancer from smoking, heart attacks from eating too much saturated fat… And food poisoning! 🙂 Jam should get 5 minutes in the boiling water bath, too.
Hi Lauren. Your “small air bubble” batch of salsa should be fine. Eat and enjoy! As for storage time, most canning books tell you to store in a dark cool place for up to a year. That’s sound advice, as canned food starts to loose its nutritional value after that. However, I’ve eaten a few jars of this salsa that were 2 and 3 years old, and they still tasted great and had a good texture. They maybe just weren’t as “fresh” feeling. That all being said, if your gift recipients like salsa, it probably won’t last more than a week or two!
Canning Salsa with Garden Tomatoes: These ingredients will create a mild to medium salsa. It has a sweet beginning, but the more it sits in your mouth, you’ll feel a slight heat. Simply adjust the heat by adjusting the amount and types of chilis. Recipe found at Real Life.
Ball Canning is a good place to mango habanero salsa recipe canning but I doubt you’ll enjoy the excessively pickled flavor. But you have to learn to walk before you can run. Buy a pressure canner. It’s the only way to make home canned salsa using lower amounts of lime juice as a preservative. Research: Annie’s Salsa for some direction.
Oh goodness! Well I hope I didn’t mess it up too much. I did drain the half I chopped in the food processor. The half I cut by hand I just poured off the juice from the cutting board prior to adding the tomatoes to the pot. The sample I had prior to processing them was yummy! We will find out when they cool.

i currently just moved to belgium and i was wondering what you can substitute for some of the ingredients? i know it makes my spices limited, but if you (or anyone reading could help, i would be most grateful) most specifically: 1- 10 oz can original Rotel.
[…] 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. […]
