  • 4 28 oz. cans whole, peeled tomatoes, drained
  • 2 bunches green onions (Can add more if you wish.)
  • 4 4 oz. cans chopped, green chilies (Can add more if you wish.)
  • 1 small bottle of hot taco sauce (Start with half the bottle and add more as necessary for spice level. You can use jalapeƱo or habanero taco sauce for added spice.)
  • ground Cumin to taste (Start with 1 Tbsp. and add more for taste. I generally use about 3 Tbsp.)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Crush tomatoes with hands, or chop with kitchen scissors until chunky.
  • Add other ingredients and mix thoroughly.
  • Can serve immediately, but the flavors get better the longer it sits in the fridge.
  • Store in fridge for 2 - 3 weeks.
