    Excellent recipe. I forgot to buy salsa AND tomatoes at the grocery store this week-end, so wanted to come up with an alternative for a salsa recipe. This is it! I love how versatile it is! Thanks for sharing.

    This looks great. Just wondering if the cans of salsa are 14 1/2 oz cans or is that the combined amount for both cans. Also would I be able to substitute fresh tomatoes in this recipe.

    Should it be refrigerated? how long does it stay fresh?

    It sounds very good. And good reviews!!! Can I follow your directions but put in jars to be canned using a hot water bath?

    Thank you! This is so useful for when tomatoes are out of season… I really don’t like cardboard supermarket hothouse ones. I especially like how you’ve offered ideas for substitutions. I like playing with recipes. I had some veggies to use up, so I made this with one tin of tomatoes, the good middles of a handful of half-desiccated spring onions and two salad onions, three monster cloves of good fresh garlic, a big wodge of fresh coriander, juice of one whole lemon, one medium-sized red chili pepper of the sort usually available in shops in Britain, not sure what they are… Mirasol, maybe? Anyway, hot but not terribly hot with a sweet overtone. Magic, and so easy! Much, much better than shop-bought. Ingredients I almost always have to hand, too (I am distinctly unhappy if there are not tinned tomatoes in the house). I will be playing with this more! Cheers!

    Outstanding. I halved this recipe, made it in my NutriBullet and then pan-fried extra flour tortillas -cut into wedges- to make chips.

    I’ve never made salsa with canned tomatoes before, but this looks like a delicious recipe! I’ll have to give it a try. I always love any Tex-Mex foods and flavors.

    Oooo…I love homemade salsa. My mom makes her own all the time but hers is cooked. I can’t wait to try this no-cook version.

    What a great recipe!!!!! I had everything in the fridge and pantry. The only thing I did different was I used stewed tomatoes. Once everything was processed I had some cherry tomatoes and an extra half of jalapeño, I put this in at the end and did 6 pulses to break them up. I then put poured in a pot and simmered for about 10 minutes. I let cool down and put in the fridge overnight. Was absolutely delicious and the closest thing to my favorite Mexican restaurant in Sarasota, FL. Thank you!!

    I have prepared this recipe exactly as written or with a few tweaks (dried cilantro, bottled lime juice, extra red chili powder, canned green chile, etc) and I like every variation better than any off the shelf salsa in a jar that I have ever had. I usually blend it pretty thoroughly but I am thinking I need to just toss all of the ingredients together and try a chunky version.

    With this easy recipe there is no need to ever buy salsa in a jar again. And for those who like raw tomato I’ll bet that raw tomato would make a great stand in for the canned tomato.

      Hey, Rhonda… sorry for the late reply, but we haven’t tried canning it yet. I hope someone who has tried it comes back and lets us know! :)
