    figured I would share my always asked for Salsa recipe.  Since most 'maters are coming in now around where I live. Here we go!

    About 15 to 20 Roma (plum) tomatoes (cubed)

    1 large red onion (rough chopped)

    3 bell peppers (I use a green, orange and a red one for color)

    1 can of whole kernel corn (drained....or could use some smoked corn from the cob!)

    3-5 habaneros

    4-6 jalaps

    4-5 finger-hot peppers

    (now what I do for the peppers to give everyone their fair share of the hot-ness of them...is to put them into a mini chopper and grind them up good)

    Cilantro (part of a bunch rough chopped)

    lime (I juice the lime...but save a small slice for decoration on the top with a sprig of cilantro thru the middle)

    Salt and pepper to taste

    Basically you chop all of the 'maters, peppers and cilantro. This make a huge batch...so get out a huge bowl.  Throw all of it into the bowl as you are working on the items.  I save the lime juice, salt and pepper for last.  It's really pretty and goes fast with tortilla chips and cold beer! My Hubby loves this on hot dogs and/or brats!

    I do hope yall enjoy this!

    (finally updated this with some pictures!)

    All but the roma tomatoes are from the Victory Garden

    makes a huge bowl full

    goodies from the garden to go into the Salsa.  Was nice not to have to go buy everything.

    Looks pretty tasty Kat! With all the peppers how hot is this salsa? 1-10? Will be watching to see how it stands up to canning.

    that depends on if I use the habaneros  or just jalaps.  If I do use the "fire" ones....I put about 8-10 of them in there....along with the jalaps too.  So with my family's tastes....that rates about a 9.5 on the hot scale.  Others that eat it say it's wimpy!  LOL

    I am going to try that when we get some more peppers from the garden.

    too funny!  Lots of folks around here are griping about theirs taking soooo long to ripen.  Have a lot of fried green maters around here now.

    Hmmm....maybe we could use them like banana leaves or grape leaves and do an earth roast with them. [​IMG]

  15. I'll do a Qview next time I make a batch
