  • Thank you for catching this, it should read 4 ounces of canned green chilies (not drained).

  • You can use the WildSide jar. Happy blending!

  • Is there any reason not to use the Wild Side jar? I don’t have a 4-side jar.

    DiannaB on

  • You can use fresh but the recipe calls for canned because the juices are used as well. Happy blending!

    Blendtec on

  • Why canned can I not use fresh green chili

    Priya on

  • Sounds super good and super easy. I’m definitely going to make this!

    BigSexy on

  • By making this salsa a few times will my WildSide Jar smell of salsa even after cleaning?? Or is it better to buy a 2nd Jar?

    Vicente Ruelas on

  • This is so yummy!!!!!!!

    Green Dragon on

  • No, not a problem! Add more onion… whatever is to your liking!

    Blendtec on

  • will adding more onion be a problem?

    Mitch Jentink on

  • It shouldn’t. If the smell does linger, run it through your dishwasher on the coolest setting it will allow.

    Blendtec on

  • I wouldn’t say the smell lingers, but the acidity of the tomatoes will pitt the plastic making it appear cloudy. Be sure and rinse it out thoroughly immediately after using.

    KarenL on

  • I used fresh chilies and tomatoes from my garden and added some adobe sauce from a can of chipotles in adobo. Delicious!!! Thank you for the wonderful recipe!

    Judy on

  • About 5-7 days :)

    Blendtec on

  • How long will it keep in the refrigerator?

    Lyne on

  • How about doubling or tripling this batch and canning.

    Jeffrey Steele on

  • We’re so happy you enjoyed it! Using your own fresh ingredients had to have made it even more delicious!

    Blendtec on

  • Yes, you can but the consistency and taste will change a bit. It’s fine if you’re going to use it in things like soups and chili but if you want to use it as a condiment, we suggest having it fresh (or refrigerated).

    Blendtec on

  • Can you freeze this salsa?

    Tafters on

  • Should this read ‘4 canned green chiles’ or ‘4 cans of green chile’?
