There is a tomato overload in my backyard right now.

Every year I plant way more tomato seeds than any one family should, in hopes that a few plants will survive and thrive. I am not known for being the best gardener, yet I do get lucky every now and again.

This year, my tomato plants took off, providing us with a seemingly endless supply of seven varieties of tomatoes. I have been eating them in salads and sauces for the last month.

Yet I always say, when life gives you tomatoes… Make salsa!

Sometimes salsa made with just fresh ingredients can come off with a shallow flavor… Lacking depth. Whereas, salsa made with canned ingredients alone can taste store-bought.

It is my belief that you need both fresh and canned ingredients to make the best homemade salsa recipe. I like to start with fresh sweet garden tomatoes, red onion, garlic, jalapeños, cilantro, and lime. Then chop them into a fine grade in the food processor.

Then I add canned crushed san marzano tomatoes and green chiles, to layer extra depth into the salsa. The canned tomatoes provide a rustic essence and sweetness that accentuates the fresh produce, while the canned green chiles deliver a smoky quality that fresh peppers are lacking.

That way, you taste bright tangy notes from garden-fresh tomatoes, sharp notes from the onion and garlic, herbs and spice, and complexity from the “secret ingredient” canned items, all in one!

If you are sensitive to spicy heat, you can adjust The Best Homemade Salsa Recipe by adding less jalapeños… Or take it up a notch by throwing in habanero or serrano chiles!

Spoon the best homemade salsa recipe over eggs, on your favorite Mexican dishes, or just scoop it up with chips.

    Sommer,

    I just got a food processor. Who knew salsa was THAT easy. Now, where to find decent tortilla chips in Ireland.

    Hmmm?

    Thanks for another good one.

    BTW – I’m also eyeing the fig/prosciutto pizza & blueberry cake.

    Best,
    Glenn K.

        We freeze ours. When you thaw it , put it in a colander to drain some of the water from it before serving.

    I LOVE that you combined canned AND fresh ingredients! I agree — all of either one makes for a very dull tasting salsa. I can’t wait to try this!!

    I had save this recipe cause I knew it would be good, and it proved to be the best one I’ve ever made. My ratios of spices and peppers were a little altered, and I had a can of Muir Glen fire roasted, crushed tomatoes which added a little more depth perhaps, but it’s a big winner. I filed this in “Make Again” for sure! Thank you – love your emails.

    Hi, Sommer, I was pointed to your blog by Cory Kowalski. I immediately saved your detox soup recipe AND the salsa one. I love salsa and love making it, but I can’t eat as much as I’d like to because I have kidney disease (and tomatoes aren’t good for me). I am going to try making a salsa with an extra dose of tomatilos, substituting them for some of the tomatoes. I’ll let you know how it comes out. BTW, I can’t find a ‘follow’ button on your site — except pointing to Pinterest, which I know nothing about.

    Just tried this salsa recipe tonight. First time making salsa actually. If I had known  how easy it was and good it turn out, I should have made some much sooner. Thanks for the recipe. This is definitely a keeper.
