Homemade Rotel Tomatoes
One pint + one pound of melted Velveeta = heaven. I also use in chili, taco soup, vegetable soup...whenever I want to add zip to a recipe!
- 1 gallon tomatoes, peeled and chopped
- 2-3 green bell peppers, chopped
- 7 to 10 jalapeno peppers, chopped (7 for medium or 10 for hot)
- 1 large onion, finely chopped
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup cider vinegar
- 1 1/2 T canning salt
Chop peppers and onions into small pieces.
Put all ingredients into a large pot and bring to a boil; simmer 45 minutes stirring frequently.
Put tomato mixture into prepared pint jars leaving 1/4 inch head space.
Process for 15 minutes in boiling water bath.
