    Heidi! I just found your blog and I love it… I really love your "about me" …
    and I really enjoy your recipes…so I will be back for more, but I just wanted to say hello and let you know how much I enjoyed my time on your site!! Gotta run … in the interest of NOT keeping my kids up until midnight, we are celebrating midnight at 11…which is soon ;)
    Happy New Year!! Keri Lyn

    My recipe is very similar. I also add 2 tomatillos to mine. It does not add heat, just more flavor. Thanks for linking to TMTT.

  3. Angela says

    This sounds fabulous & easy, gonna try it! So few inexpensive ingredients, may have to keep some Ro-Tel a staple. : ) My only suggestion since I too love fresh salsa… try adding some lime. Gives salsa a yummy zing & keeps in fresher longer.

    Hi Margie!

    Ro-Tel is a brand of Diced Tomatoes with Green Chilies added. If you can’t find Ro-Tel, you can just use a 10 oz. can of Diced Tomatoes with Green Chilies. :)

    I make my own salsa with a can chili ready diced tomatoes and a can of Ro-Tel diced tomatoes with lime juice & cilantro and Ro-Tel diced tomatoes with habaneros ( hot!!) OR Ro-Tel diced tomatoes with green chilies. I add chopped garlic ( I used 2 cloves). The Ro-Tel are the 10 oz size and the chili ready is a 14.5 oz can.

    Love your site! Today I have made the Freezer Jam and the Salsa!
    I am wondering…can you freezer the Salsa as you would the Jam?

  7. Katie says

    I’m wondering if this recipe can be canned. How would I go about doing that? Would the ingredients need to be boiled before going into the jars for sterilization? Or would the hot water bath do that? Please help! I love this recipe and would like to make it in bulk and can, but I’m a beginner-canner and am not sure. Thanks!

  8. Christie says

    Thank you sooo much for posting this recipe. I have made it several times and tweek it a little more each time. It is so good! I love your site, and the recipe section is by far my favorite, thanks for all you do!

  9. Chrissy says

    Hi! I make a similar recipe, except I like mine a little chunky. So I put everything in a pot and simmer it on the stove for a while. It gives it a really good flavor and softens up the onions. Then I just let it cool, put it in jars, and put in the fridge.
    P.s. I love your site Heidi!

  10. Sandy says

    I’m Canadian…and have no idea what Ro-Tel is for making the
    salsa. Can someone please give me some idea as to what this is.

    • Heidi says

      Hi Sandy,

      Ro-Tel is a brand of Diced Tomatoes with Green Chilies added. If you can’t find Ro-Tel, you can just use a 10 oz. can of Diced Tomatoes with Green Chilies. Hope that helps! ;)

    You forgot to add the Lime Juice. Add 2 Tbsp of lime juice. Also use Jalepenos either fresh or from the can sliced very small depending upon how how you like it. Experiment with a Tbsp at a time. Use the canned Petite tomatoes instead.

  12. Debbie Hughes says

    This is great to freeze…just make sure there are no big chunks. I don’t care for cooked, canned salsa and after this thaws it tastes like it was just made!

  13. Katya says

    Hi! I’m wondering if anyone knows the nutritional facts for this recipe. I LOVE this salsa and would like to make a jar for a friend, but she has very restricted caloric intake right now. If it’s healthy enough, she would love a delicious salsa for her otherwise dull diet!! :) Thanks!

  14. Renee says

    Hi Heidi,
    This recipe sounds delicious! Just wondering how long it keeps in the jar before opening? I would like to make some for Christmas gifts this year :)
