Easy Canned Tomato Salsa Appetizer Recipe

I love to garden and am fortunate enough to have a garden in our backyard, but during the winter months in Iowa we don’t have the fresh tomatoes like we do in the hot summer months, so sometimes I have to forego my homemade salsa with fresh ingredients and settle for canned tomatoes, which is fine by me as this salsa is fantastic, too. I don’t like the taste of jarred salsa, so I find myself always venturing back to this canned tomato salsa recipe and I hope you like it as much as I do.

First off, get your blender ready as I do this salsa in the blender. I suppose you could make the salsa in the food processor, but I think it’s easiest to dump it all in and press “blend”.

It truly is that easy so I only have a couple of images to show you how to make this .. .and they’re all in the collage above.  😀  Dump and go & easy does it will be the nicknames for this tomato salsa.

    Hello, my name is Kathy, I live in Adelaide S.A. I work I a child care centre as a cook, I love this page, so many good recipes,, has helped me out a lot thankyou, anyway I was just wondering, what is cilantro, is that corrianda.

  2. Maggie Galliher says

    Kathy, I happened upon this and realized no one had responded to your question. Yes, cilantro is the leaf of the coriander plant. The seeds are ground and sold as the spice that we call “coriander.” Hope that was helpful!

  3. ME says

    Boil the jalapeño in a pot of water for about 7 minutes first (just cut the stem off) throw in blender and it kicks the heat up a notch. Remember to keep the seeds just cut the stem off.

  4. Benjy says

    When you talk about the cilantro what do you mean by 4 T and when you talk about lime what do you mean by 2 t?

    What is the main reason for having to let it sit for 24 hours as opposed to being able to using it imidiatly – does it make a big difference?
