The first time we made this the tomatoes were pretty weak and watery so we ended up using 1 1/2 jars (10-11oz) of Italian tomato paste. This year we used one 7oz jar and maybe didn't need it.
We did add extra lime juice (2T), salt (2t.), cumin (1t.) and garlic (1/2t.) this year.....we ended up with hotter jalapenos, or using more of them, plus 3 Scottish Bonnets in the pepper mix. It's much hotter than last year's batch. (Adrienne keeps sneezing!) But still good!
I hope hubby can get used to raw salsa. He prefers his tomatoes cooked......
8 1/2 pints in the freezer!
