Tomato Salsa Using Canned Tomatoes

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

Tomato Salsa Using Canned Tomatoes

  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 3 T olive oil
  • 3 T finely chopped onions
  • 1-2 T minced garlic (from the jar)
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 2 T lime juice
  • 1/2-1 tsp Frank's Hot Sauce
  • 1 T rice vinegar

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)

Fresh Tomato Salsa

  • 4 medium tomatoes, diced
  • 2 to 4 green onions with tops, diced
  • 1 to 2 jalapeno peppers
  • 1/2 cup snipped cilantro leaves
  • juice of one lemon or lime
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt

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)

This is my mom's recipe. I make it all the time.

Mom's Homemade Salsa

  • 2 cans Delmonte diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped
  • 8 green onions (only the whites), chopped
  • 4 whole jalapenos, cooked and chopped
  • garlic salt, to taste
  • onion salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste

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.

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.

Tomato Salsa

  • 8-10 ripe tomatoes, peeled (I used 2 quarts canned)
  • 2 large onions, chopped
  • 3 red or green bell peppers
  • 3 medium hot chilies
  • 2 cans diced green Ortega chili peppers
  • 1-4 oz can (or 5 fresh) jalapenos, (I don't like hot, so I omitted the hot chilies and the jalapenos and used another can of Ortegas.)
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1-6oz can tomato paste
  • 2 cloves crushed garlic
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp sugar ( I used 4 packets of artificial sweetener)
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 2 tbsps chopped cilantro

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)
