Our family's all-time favorite salsa, this recipe is the reason we grow a huge garden every summer. We make gallons of it and share with our neighbors. You might find yourself eating it right out of the bowl with a spoon.—Donna Kelly, Provo, Utah

  2. In a food processor, process uncooked and roasted tomatoes in batches until chunky. Transfer all to a large bowl.
  3. Place the cilantro, lime juice, garlic, lime peel and remaining oil in the food processor. Cover and process until blended; add to tomatoes. Stir in the peppers, onions, cumin, paprika, chipotle pepper, salt and hot sauce. Let stand 1 hour to allow flavors to blend. Serve with chips. Yield: 8 cups.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.

"I adjust the spices a bit because I don't like it quite so spicy but everyone raves about this salsa when I make it!"

"Best salsa recipe! It is well worth the time to make this. We enjoy it equally well on breakfast omelets."

"Loved this - it was easy and came out delicious. I left out the chili powder and cut the jalapenos based on my family's tastes. Also didn't have green onions so used a sweet onion."
