Salsa Recipe

I did a post a couple days ago about the Salsa that my mom and I make every year, the recipe came from my Grandma Sanchez and it is by far the most amazing thing i have ever tasted! I mentioned that if anyone was interested in the recipe that i would be more than happy to share, and since there was feedback (thank you mommy elephant :) Here it is!

Grandma Sanchez's Salsa Recipe ~

  • 1 bucket red tomatoes ( this part you can adjust, if you like super tomatoey then by all means go ahead! I do one Medium brown paper bag of red tomatoes (around 15 tomatoes).

  • 5-8 orange tomatoes (i think it makes the salsa extra pretty :)

  • 2 onions

  • 3 green peppers

  • 2 red peppers

  • 2 yellow peppers

  • 2 hot red banana peppers

  • 6+ jalapenos ( i used more like 15 for this batch and it was perfect! If you like spicy then add more, if not then i still recommend at least 6 or it will come out with a very tomatoey taste)

  • 3 cans black beans (rinsed)

  • 1 bag frozen corn

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 2tbsp salt

  • 3 cups vinegar

Start by chopping all the veggies onions - jalapenos. Use your own judgment on this, if you like super chunky or smaller pieces in your salsa. toss everything in a big bowl as its chopped.

once that is done you are going to want to blanche your tomatoes, bring a pot of water to a boil and drop the tomatoes in a few at a time, let them sit for 1 minute then remove to a bowl (sink) of cold water. once they are done you need to peel the skin off.

Chop tomatoes into small chunks and add to your bowl.

transfer everything over to a lg pot and add your sugar, salt & vinegar.

let cook on medium heat for 1 hour stirring occasionally.

add your rinsed black beans and corn and mix well.

It's ready to jar!

Please share with me how this turns out for you!!
