I love salsa and I saw this recipe and just had to try it. I have been wanting a salsa recipe that I could also use in the winter time when garden tomatoes are no longer available. I have used some great canned tomatoes and I found some that I prefer to use with this salsa recipe. I got this recipe from the ‘Pioneer Woman’ website and I changed it a little bit. Hope you enjoy it all year round! This recipe can make a huge batch but definitely well worth it. It freezes well.

Makes: 12 servings

Here’s what you’ll need:

cupcakes, salsa, hot subs 026

1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes (perfect to double and use the 28 oz can)

1 can (10 oz) Rotel (diced tomatoes and green chiles-Mexican flavor)

1/4 cup chopped onion

1 clove garlic, minced (or 1/2 tsp garlic powder)

1 whole jalapeno, quartered and sliced thin (optional)

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp sugar

1/4 tsp ground cumin

1/2 tsp homemade chili and taco seasoning (in the Spices, Rubs, and Marinades category)

1/4-1/2 cup cilantro (adjust according to taste)

1 tsp lime juice


Combine tomatoes, Rotel, onion, jalapeno (optional), garlic, cilantro, sugar, salt, cumin, and lime juice in a large bowl, I like chunky salsa…..

Stir until all items are combined thoroughly…..

Add the taco and chili seasoning mix at the end…..

Stir well again, cover, and refrigerate for at least an hour.


**You can also place all the ingredients into a blender or food processor and pulse until you get the salsa to the consistency you would like. Test seasonings with tortilla chips and adjust as needed.
