Here's what I do: try to find Mrs. Wages Salsa Tomato Mix at the grocery:buy canned or fresh roma tomatoes( 1/2 grocery bag or 4 cans.If you use canned, crush them up, fresh, scald and remove skins, then crush. Put in large kettle, remove some of the extra liquid, then heat with one chopped onion, halopena peppers ( 1-2) and the salsa mix. Bring to boil, and stir a couple of times( otherwise it gets to soupy), let it simmer 10 minutes, then put in jars. Makes about 8 1/2 pints. I process in canner 20 minutes or so, have never had a bad jar. You can also freeze in containers. The mix comes in mild and hot, which is really hot! very easy and tastes like the real thing.Let jars go for 24 hours if possible before eating.I have a problem keeping my jars , as friends like to take it home.

I use the Mrs. Wages mix also, but add a can or so of drained rinsed black beans and frozen corn. It is oh so easy to make.

Pico de gallo is always the best salsa but it must be made fresh. My emergency salsas are based either on canned peeled tomatoes or El Pato tomato sauce. To the tomatoes I add chopped seeded jalapenos (or your choice of fresh chili), chopped onion & cilantro, Pulse in the blender to your desired consistency. To the El Pato sauce I just add chopped onion and cilantro, Tabasco if you want it hotter. There are so many, many excellent salsas available why spend all your time roasting peppers and tomatoes? Unless, of course, you are canning your own which should be another thread.

Hi..I make mine by cutting up in small pieces tomatoes, onions, jalapenos and what ever else you might like in yours. I put in some lemon juice, cilantro and salt and lots of pepper. If I want it to be a hot salsa I add crushed peppers (find in spice section)...
