Camp 2005 -- Salsa

Here's a simple salsa that campers love at FC Camp. I prepare one batch on Wednesday and use the salsa for three meals through the second half of the week.


Use a #10 can of diced tomatoes to build this salsa. I found the Montecito brand salsa style dice tomatoes is a good product to use for this salsa. It's available at Smart & Final. You can use fresh tomatoes if desired. This salsa is mild. You can adjust the heat to suit the camper's tastes.

6-3/8 pounds canned diced tomatoes (1 #10 can)
2 cups onion, chopped
5 jalapeno peppers, peeled, seeded and chopped
1 cup chopped cilantro
5 limes, juiced
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon ground red pepper
2 tablespoons cumin
3 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon paprika
2 tablespoons dried oregano

Combine canned diced tomatoes or finely chopped fresh tomatoes with onions, peppers, cilantro, lime juice, salt to taste, sugar and seasonnings. Blend well. Cover and refrigerate at 41 degrees F or lower at least 1 hour before serving.

Yield: 3-1/2 quarts.
