I feel like I am in a B movie with all of these lil red guys laying around. I got 10 1/2 pints of my ‘Rotel’, and 1 1/2 pints of tomato juice from my efforts, and STILL have 55 tomatoes left, not to mention the onions, since there were no onions harmed in the making of this recipe.
I wasn’t sure about what peppers to use, because I wanted a milder flavor, so I bought some green chilles and some Anaheim peppers. I used 3 cups of Anaheim to 1 cup of the chillies, hoping that they would compliement each other well.
I guess because there were more tomamtoes, there was more moisture. I was just surprised at the amount of juice in them.
28 c. Tomatoes, peeled and chopped
3 c. Anaheim Peppers, chopped
1 c. Green Chillies, chopped
1 can tomato paste
1/4 c. lime juice
1/4 c. lemon juice
1/4 c. parsley
4 TBS salt
Mix together and bring to a boil, ladle into jars and water bath for 20-30 minutes. Any excess juice can also be canned separately.
yield – approx. 10 pints
