Picante Sauce

This is on the docket for tomorrow. I found it at Great Salsa.

  • 1 ½ Gallons Fresh Ripe Tomatoes (peel tomatoes by putting in boiling water for 15 seconds and then in ice water) hand chop and if tomatoes are watery - let set for a few minutes and drain off excess juice. This will make your sauce chunky!
Using a food processor chop the next 3 ingredients.
  • 3 large onions
  • 8 bell peppers
  • 1 quart jalapeños
Measure the following:
  • 1 Tablespoon Garlic Powder
  • 4 Tablespoon Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon crushed Red Pepper
  • 2 Tablespoon Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Salad Oil
  • ½ cup Vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Chili Powder
Put all ingredients in large pot - bring to rolling boil - turn down heat - Cook 20 minutes.
Put in sterile jars and seal (boiling water bath for 10 minutes).
Makes approximately 10-12 pints.

This came out REALLY good! The veggie chunks didn't cook down much, so next time, I will chop them a bit smaller.

I'm making this a second time. Almost all of my children like the original version, but one asked for a milder one. I am using just 12 jalapenos and 2 poblanos this time, and leaving the remainder of the recipe the same. I'll let you know how they like it when we crack the first one!
