  4. Lisa@BlessedwithGrace says:

    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.

  5. I have never made salsa before, but I think now is the time! Looks great!

  6. Melissa 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.

  9. Margie says:

    What is Ro-Tel? I have never heard of it.

  10. Heidi says:

    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.

    Thanks Kristee. :)

  14. Gwen says:

    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?

  15. 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!

  16. Heidi says:

    Gwen ~ I have never tried freezing this salsa… if you do, let me know how it turns out!

  17. 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!

  18. Christie says:

    By the way I double the Salsa recipe and I do freeze it. It works just fine!!

  19. 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!

  20. 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! ;)
