Most of us know that jalapeño peppers taste hot. But did you know that if you don't handle them carefully, the oils in the peppers could irritate your skin? Be sure to handle them with care, because their heat and special flavor add so much to our favorite foods that they're worth the extra effort.

What You'll Need

  • 1 (14-1/2 ounce) can stewed tomatoes, drained and chopped
  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 1/4 cup diced green bell pepper
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

What to Do

  1. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Refrigerate 1 hour or overnight.


For medium salsa, add an extra 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper. For hot salsa, add an extra 1/4 teaspoon.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Really enjoy all the different twists to making salsa, as does family & friends. Thank you soooo much for all the valuable recipes & information this site has provided me. I just can't sing your praises enough! Many thanks,

How can you call this fresh when the very 1st ingredient is canned tomatoes?! Also prefer real garlic, not garlic powder. Also like 'fresh' cilantro in my salsa, bit of lemon juice--'fresh,' and bit of sugar.
