Canned Tomato Salsa Recipe – Canning Homemade Salsa
Learn how to properly and safely can your homemade Tomato Salsa.  This was my daughters, Brenda Weller and Nancy Hartman, first time experience canning homemade tomato salsa.  Canning and friends go together because it can be a lengthy process all by yourself.  It is a great opportunity to gather a few friends or involve your family, as the more hands makes the work go faster.  Not to mention the fun of working with a group far outweighs attempting to can by yourself.  Preserving your own food is a very satisfying and rewarding experience.  If we can can, you can too!


Cranberry Salsa with Cream Cheese
This fantastic recipe was shared with me by Carol Reich of Hillsboro, Oregon.  Carol won a Dip Contest on the Satellite Sisters Radio Show with this outstanding and also beautiful-to-look-at recipe.


Cucumber Salsa
I can never get enough of salsa and tortilla chips to snack on when I need that salt fix.  I really love a good pico de gallo recipe so I thought I would use cucumbers instead of tomatoes to make this version of cucumber salsa with all the other pico de gallo ingredients I love!  Double this recipe if you want to make a larger batch to bring to a party.


Fresh Mango Salsa
Salsas are a main staple in Hispanic cooking, but they are certainly not limited to what many people think of as “salsa.”  I have found very few jarred salsas that I would ever even consider serving on my table, and there really should be no reason for anyone to resort to a jarred salsa when making one is so easy.


Fresh Tomato Corn Salsa
End of the season sweet corn, tomatoes, jalapeno peppers, and a southwest-style dressing make this a colorful and fresh addition to your meal.


Fresh Tomato Salsa
This salsa is a delicious uncooked chunky tomato sauce. You can develop a real passion for fresh tomato salsa, since it is low in calories and very flavorful.


Rick’s (soon to be famous) Salsa – Canned Tomato Salsa
Rick says, “I should sell this stuff and make a little extra money. I know I could because it gets rave reviews every time I bring it to work!  But I know I never will, so I guess I will go ahead and share the recipe.”



Jicama Salsa
Check out this very unusual and delicious salsa! Jicama is a legume, is grown for the large tuberous roots which can be eaten raw or cooked and are used as a source of starch.



Mango-Black Bean Salsa
A wonderful and tasty salsa recipe.  Also excellent with seafood and fish.  Its most popular use is as a chip dip, but also used as a sauce on meats.

Peach-Avocado Salsa
This recipe was shared with me by my friend, Karen Calanchini of Redding, CA.

Roasted Bell Pepper and Avocado Salsa
Recipe by Chef Sarah Scott of the Robert Mondavi Winery of California.



Roasted Chile Pepper and Tomatillo Salsa
Fiery hot salsa – for those you like salsa hot! So good and so addicting!



Roasted Lemon Salsa
This is an unusual approach that produces a great condiment.  Roasting a lemon softens its acidity and adds a toasty note.  It’s a great topper for broiled or grilled chicken and fish.


Salsa Verde
Salsa verde is to Mexican cuisine what tomato sauce is to Italian food.  Its most popular use is as a chip dip, but also used as a sauce on meats.



Smokey Toasted Arbol (or Guajillo) Salsa
This is not your usual salsa.  It is rusty red, very spicy, and perfect for drizzling over tacos, eggs, or anything cooked on your grill.


Tomatillo-Avocado Salsa
This is kind of like a salsa verde, but with the addition of avocado.  This salsa is so good and very addictive!



Tomato Raisin Fusion Salsa
This interesting and healthy salsa is a combination of Tex-Mex and Indian spices.  I love playing around with flavor combinations of different ingredients.  The raisin add a distinct sweetness, and the curry and jalapeno chile pepper add another dimension!


Tropical Fruit Salsa
This fruit salsa is a delicious summertime treat.  You can develop a real passion for this salsa, since it is low in calories and very flavorful.




Guacamole Recipes:

Canyon Ranch Guacamole – Asparagus Guacamole
This wonderful recipe is from the cookbook Canyon Ranch Cooking: Bringing the Spa Home, by Canyon Ranch, Inc. and Jeanne Jones, 1998.


Chunky Avocado Salad – Guacamole Salad
This version of guacamole is fantastic!  I really like this chunky version over the mashed ones.  It can be served as an appetizer or a salad with either corn or flour tortillas.


Chunky Guacamole with Cilantro
This is my favorite Guacamole recipe.  In the cuisine of the Southwest, guacamole is used as a cocktail dip, or one of the toppings and/or fillings of enchiladas, tacos, tostadas, or burritos.


Guacamole (Garden Style)
Guacamole can be found on the menu at many Mexican food restaurants, and it is possible to be just a bit different at each restaurant.  Therefore, this recipe may not seem like what you have eaten as guacamole, but it can always be changed to your preferences.  Guacamole is very simple to make, and you can take quite a few freedoms in how you make it, even what you put in it.  This recipe is for a basic “chunky” style guacamole.


Tomatillo-Avocado Guacamole
This recipe is courtesy of Betty Forner and Trey Forner of Vancouver, Washington.  I first tasted this outstanding guacamole at our friend’s Louisiana Crawfish Boil.
