Question looking for salsa recipe to can

good morning! I am going to be visiting my parents this weekend and they have a friend (single male) who has a garden full of tomatoes/onions/jalapenos, but doesn't really want to spend all day in the kitchen making salsa. He will share the results with whoever will can it for him SO I am planning to spend a fair amount of my weekend canning salsa. My mom has a recipe that we normally use that is very "fresh" tasting and good. But I was hoping to also have another recipe to try--something that is thicker and has a bolder flavor, similar to what I buy at the store. I think the difference is the use of heat in preparation. For my mom's recipe, we chop everything up, add seasonings and a little vinegar, put it in the jars and can. I think the bolder salsa maybe is cooked for a bit before canning? Does anyone know or have a recipe?

3 bell peppers cut in pieces
4 med onions sliced
2 cups vinegar
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup canning salt
1 large garlic head chopped
2 Tblsp chili powder
2 tsp cummin
2 Tblsp black pepper 1 tsp alum
cilanto chopped use as much as you need
combine all ingerdients and cook over low heat for 45 min. can as usual. these are the directions she gave me and i use my Ball cookbook for the canning times. I hope this helps. I haven't met anyone yet that didn't like this recipe
