Does anyone have a recipe for tomato salsa, using canned chopped tomatoes if possible? Fresh tomatoes would be okay too.

The following seasonings add to taste: lemon pepper, adobo seasoning, and cilantro; I use about 1 T or a little more of this. Put all into the food processor. Very healthy. (04/11/2007)
Dice tomatoes and onions in large mixing bowl to save juices. Wash jalapenos, remove stems and seeds and dry with paper towels. Dice jalapenos and add tomatoes. Combine all other ingredients and chill about 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from refrigerator and taste. If tomatoes are too tart, add a little sugar to cut the tartness. Chill about 30 minutes more to blend flavors and serve. (04/11/2007)
Great recipe, my friends love it. Enjoy.
This is my mom's recipe. I make it all the time.
Mom's Homemade Salsa
Chop cilantro and green onions, set aside. Boil jalapenos for 7 minutes then immediately put into ice water. Dry off jalapenos and chop in chopper. Add tomatoes to blender and puree. Pour tomatoes into a big bowl and add cilantro, green onions, jalapeno, and spices. Mix well.
For mild salsa, add only 2 jalapenos.
I got this recipe from a local PBS station.

Place garlic and water in blender. Pulse until garlic is finely chopped. Add next 5 ingredients and pulse (very important to pulse and not have blender on continuously.) Continue to pulse until well chopped. Add chopped cilantro. Mix well. Pour in container, refrigerate until cool. Serve with favorite chips.
Hi Barbara, I love that part of the northwest. I lived in WA for about 20 years, in and around Mt Vernon, Burlington, Sedro-Wooley and Concrete. Wish I had stayed there. This recipe came from a friend in Mt Vernon.
Chop tomatoes, onion, and pepper. Chop hot pepper with cloves of garlic. Combine all ingredients in a large pot and bring to a boil, stirring often. Turn down heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Pour into hot sterilized jars. Process as you would when canning tomatoes. Makes 5 pints. Hope you like it.
I cheat; I purchase from Tastefully Simple you can find them on line. You just add 1/4 cup to one can of tomatoes. You can make it as strong or as weak as you want it. (04/17/2007)
