Sweet Pepper Salsa

Category Salsa

Makes about 7 half-pints or 3 quarts. You can change the peppers to be a mixture of red and green, or all of one kind. But don't change the amount of tomatoes or vinegar.


  • 7 cups chopped, peeled and cored tomatoes (about 5 pounds)
  • 1 cup green pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup yellow pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup red pepper, chopped
  • Ad

  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp. cilantro, minced
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup distilled white vinegar
  • 2 drops hot pepper sauce


Prepare home canning jars and lids according to manufacturer's instructions. Combine all ingredients in a large sauce-pot. Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes. Carefully ladle hot salsa into hot jars, leaving 1/4-inch head-space. Wipe rim and threads of jar with a clean, damp cloth or paper towel. Place lid on jar with sealing compound next to glass.

Screw band down evenly and firmly, fingertip tight; don't over-tighten. Process 15 minutes in a boiling-water canner.

Note: When cutting or seeding hot peppers, wear rubber gloves to prevent hands from being burned.
