“I got this years ago from the lady in our church who canned it. I've never made it but I've eaten lots of it! It's the best salsa I have ever had. Especially good with lime tortilla chips or on taco salad (Easier-Than-Making-Tacos Taco Salad).”
6 pints

  1. Combine all ingredients except tomato paste in large sauce pot.
  2. Simmer until desired thickness.
  3. Stir in tomato paste.
  4. Ladle hot salsa into hot jars leaving 1/4 inch head-space.
  5. Process 15 minutes in a hot water bath.
  6. Note: use more hot peppers for a very hot salsa or less for mild.
