Homemade Rotel

We rarely ever use store bought canned goods. One of the few is Rotel tomatoes. One day, pondering why I couldn't make my own, I called my sister and said read me the Rotel label. Very simply it said tomatoes, peppers and salt. So after perusing the Internet and checking a few recipes, I came up with this one. Some had way too much sugar and others had unnecessary ingredients. Of course, once made, it had to be family tested. Success! Enjoy~
10 lbs. tomatoes, cored, peeled and diced
1 large bell pepper, finely diced
1 large onion, finely diced
4 jalapenos w/ seeds, finely diced
1/4 c. sugar
3/4 c. vinegar
1 1/2 - 2 tbsp. salt

Mix all ingredients together and simmer for 30 minutes. Fill sterilized jars with mixture . I used jelly jars- closer to the store bought size. Process in boiling water bath for 15 minutes.
