Oven preheat


  • 800 g canned diced tomatoes (undrained, 2 cans; or use fresh)
  • 280 g tomato paste (tomato puree; 2 cans)
  • 1.25 c onions, chopped (170g)
  • 3/4 c green bell peppers, chopped (120g)
  • 3 green chilis
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 t cumin
  • 1 t pepper
  • 1 T table salt
  • 3 T sugar
  • 3 T vinegar
  • 1 T dried mixed herbs
  • 1 t chipotle paste
  • water, as needed


Mix all together, add water as needed to bring to desired consistency, and bring to a slow boil for 10 minutes.

You may can this with a hot water bath, or just put into jars and refrigerate / freeze.  To thaw, simply place in the fridge for about 24 hours, and it'll be ready to use.


Note: This is a medium salsa. This is also a chunky salsa so if you want a smoother salsa cut your veggies into smaller pieces.

SJ Note: This is a good, cheap dish: it's half the price of the store brand stuff, and it tastes a lot better, to boot!  I usually get three jars out of it; one goes in the fridge, the other two in the freezer.  The quality doesn't suffer from freezing and thawing (even multiple times) because it's a cooked salsa.
