Quick Cherry Salsa
This quick and easy cherry salsa is a simple mixture of cherry jam and a can of diced tomatoes with chilies, that can be customized with more add-in's for extra flavor.
Cherry Jam or Fruit Spread
14.5 oz can
Diced tomatoes with green chilies
(do not drain)
(dried or fresh)
Red Pepper Flakes
Combine the jam and the can of diced tomatoes with chilies in a mixing bowl. Then stir in the tomato paste for some extra thickening.
You can also add in some diced onions or minced garlic for extra flavor.
I like the amount of heat with just the diced chilies in the can of tomatoes but if you like things spicier, a pinch or two of red pepper flakes can be added as well.
Keep the finished salsa in the refrigerator. This recipes makes about 2 cups and will last in the refrigerator for a couple of weeks.
Note: Leftover tomato paste after you open a can can be transferred to a small ziploc bag or other container and frozen for future use.
