Easy Homemade Freezer Salsa

Original recipe: thewanderlustkitchen.com


  • 4 Lbs fresh tomatoes – or 4 14oz cans diced tomatoes (fire-roasted for extra flavor)
  • 2 chopped fresh green chili’s OR 2 small cans diced green chilies
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1-2 whole jalapeno, seeds and membranes removed, minced (depending on spiciness preferred)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 3/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • Juice of one lime


  1. Place all of the ingredients in a large food processor or blender and process until desired consistency. If you have a smaller food processor (like me), you may need to do it in batches to avoid a sea of tomato products flooding down the side of your cabinets. Bummer.
  2. If you plan to serve it, refrigerate it for about an hour to chill the salsa and let the flavors mingle a bit. Otherwise, you can toss the mixture into mason jars or other freezer safe containers. Be sure to take a picture of your salsa which makes it look like you have canned it.
