Give the classic salsa a twist with this easy and flavorful homemade tomatillo and tomato salsa! It's ridiculously easy to make and will be the new star on your table!

My doctor emailed me yesterday to tell me the results of my blood test last week and apparently my vitamin D level is “severely low” so she sent a prescription to the pharmacy. I’m assuming she sent vitamin D supplements? And in that case, I feel like I can just buy a big vitamin D supplement jar at Costco?

Probably going to have to check into that but that makes me sad about our generation and having low vitamin D. We’re mostly all desk job folks so of course our vitamin D levels are going to be low! I mean, I know I can get it from eating foods with high vitamin D levels but I also think to cure my vitamin D level shortage is to go on a long beach holiday for 3 months.

Now this homemade tomatillo and tomato salsa is basically like having a party in the sun. Whenever I make salsas or any kind of dips for that matter, I just think of having a pool party or a picnic. It’s the ultimate snack and goes great with everything else you have on the table.

I switched up the classic salsa by adding tomatillos in this. I love cooking with tomatillos and it’s actually something I feel like I should do more. They’re such an underrated vegetable and should totally be utilized more in dishes. Case in point: my homemade salsa verde is one of our favs!

This homemade tomatillo and tomato salsa is ridiculously easy to make; you literally throw everything in the food processor, turn it on, and it’s done! Grab some tortilla chips, beers, and get ready to snack!

I made the recipe with fresh tomatoes and added some hot peppers and onions and garlic. It tastes pretty good but I like it a little more chunky. I guess I will do a little less on the food processor.

I ask for Tomato and Tomatillo Salsa canning recipe and this what i got...Very disappointed in this site

@Paul A House, LOL are you nuts? Hopefully not and just not computer savvy because that’s not how the internets work. Like at all. Thanks for the unexpected laugh though.

Edit: Ah just realized this was a few years ago. Hopefully you have figured things out a bit more at this point and stopped attacking recipe pages lol

It's not my fault Google gave you the wrong results. You can't blame my site for not having the recipe you want. ?

Sorry to say this recipe disappointed me. It tastes plain and very bland. Not spicy in the slightest. The canned tomatoes are overpowering. Definitely need jalapeños, garlic, and onions.

Thanks for the feedback! This was definitely a mild salsa; I didn't claim it as spicy! If you ever make it again and want to make it to your own tastes, feel free to add in all those delicious you ingredients you mentioned. I bet it'd be delicious!

Can you can (preserve) this homemade tomatillo & tomato salsa?

I don't have much experience with canning so I would use your best judgement on this.
