I pretty much hate tomatoes so I only like non chunky salsa, this is my favorite. This recipe makes a crapload, if you want a normal amount half it

3 28oz cans of stewed or chopped tomatoes
3 cans of Rotel
10 cloves of garlic (more to taste)
8-10 Jalapenos (depending on spice level desired)
1 Bunch of Cilantro
1 Cup White Vinegar
1 chopped onion
5 tsp of salt
5 tsp of cumin
5 tsp of season salt

Blend to desired thickness then bring to a boil, let it cool and you are good to go.

Yes I know unorthodox, but I like it so back off :guns:

I'm going to try that one of these weekends, except I think I'll have to replace the seasoned salt with maybe 2 tsp of sugar, just to cut the acid. Also, are the first two ingredients the same? Finally, do you use distilled white vinegar, or white wine vinegar?

I usually just use white vinegar, I never really feel it is too much acid. I do usually put more cumin and season salt in mine though.

The first two arent really the same, Rotel has other garbage in it like green chilis and stuff (and comes in different levels of spiciness, I usually go with the medium cause the wife is a wuss). I think you could go with all rotel, but I dont think it would be as flavorful with all chopped tomatoes.

Just made my best homemade and very simple salsa yet.

One 28 oz. can of:
Image

4 jalapeno peppers (1 roasted and peeled, 2 seeded and chopped, 1 whole stemmed)

Drain the seasoned diced tomatoes, toss everything in a food processor, and pulse to the right consistency. The only thing it needed, and will be in next time, is a bit of lime juice. Next time I'm upping the jalapenos, or maybe even using a habanero or two.

If my camera batteries were working I'd put up a picture. It is definitely salsa. I didn't say I pureed it, I just had to break up the huge diced tomatoes and mix the jalapenos in. Hot ketchup does sound interesting, though...

Strangely, my batteries are working again. Here's a good shot of what's remaining:

Scroll down the bottom (I cant find a big enough picture).

Order some and thank me later. Had my dad bring me 2 bottles from Toledo when he came out last.

There is onion and garlic in the diced tomatoes. I guess I should have linked to the actual product. Now I totally understand the "hot ketchup" comment ;-) ;) :wink:

Our best selling diced tomato. A perfect blend of ingredients highlighted by onion, celery, peppers and garlic results in this recipe ready product. We've been told they are also great to eat straight out of the can. We tend to agree.
