Try this - from what I remember, it's darn close! 

1 - 29 oz. Tomato Sauce
1/8 TSP. Black Pepper
1/8 TSP. Garlic Powder
1/8 TSP. Salt
2-3 Jalapeno Peppers (canned whole/stemmed) - with some of the juice added to taste

Blend in a blender.  Add more peppers to taste.




seems that there is much more to it than just that. cilantro? more spices??

I'm pretty sure that there is cilantro in there, not a big fan of it, and thought I could taste it.

Make it.  Pick some up from La Fiesta and compare the two.  You'll be surprised at the similarity.   I'm a cilantro nut, and I have never tasted it in their salsa.  For kicks though you should add some if you make it, it might be good.   I'm going to make it again soon and pick some up to compare the two again.  It's been a year since I've done that.. I can eat that salsa all night.  :)

So this thread is 10 years old in that time Brewer did you ever perfect the La Fiesta salsa recipe ? I have a simple question,  what brand tomato sauce are you using ? And what brand pickled jalapeƱos are you using ?  Thanks ! MFF

I made a bunch of salsa this year from my tomatoes and peppers.  Some hot and some not.  I put some of my basil in some of it and I put some cilantro in some but not much of it.. Some family like it really spicy so I put some tabasco peppers and a little Carolina Reapler and/or Trinidad Scorpian..Way way to hot fro me..Before I froze it I let it marinate in a bowl in the refrigerator for a day..

I did not use tomato sauce but when I use it for other things I always buy Dei Fratelli...It's produced in a little place just south of Toledo and they use local tomatoes..
