Yes it can, however, the tomatoes will get mushy upon thawing.

Can you freeze store bought salsa? I have a large bottle and hate to see it go to waste!

I read a tip that if you freeze picante sauce, and then let it thaw, it actually improves the flavor. Since picante and salsa are almost the same, I would think it would be fine. I haven't had the chance to try this yet. (06/11/2005)

We buy half-gallons for our food concession, then freeze what's left until the next engagement. No problems. (06/12/2005)

I am not sure about freezing it, but we always canned it and the shelf life is amazing. Be sure and learn how to properly can before doing so. It is very important to do it the right way so the food doesn't make you sick once you do eat it. (06/06/2010)

I freeze mine. The only thing is it will get a little watery on top as it thaws, but usually you can just stir it up well after it is completely thawed. (06/08/2010)
