Roasted Salsa Recipe

Roasted Salsa Recipe



An easy, yet delicious recipe for salsa. I love salsa fresh or roasted. To make fresh salsa just throw everything into the food processor instead of roasting first. Roasting the ingredients gives the salsa more depth in flavor. You want the ingredients to brown a little, but not burn - No one likes burnt salsa :)

4 Large Beefsteak Tomatoes or 7 Roma Tomatoes, quartered
3 small jalapeno's, sliced in half and seeded (leave more seeds for extra heat)
1/2 medium or small onion
2 cloves garlic, whole
3/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 Tbsp lime juice
Fresh Cilantro (about 1 cup before chopping; bunch leaves together and chop)
tiny pinch sugar

Heat a cast iron skillet. Drizzle with 1-2 Tbsp oil to coat the bottom. Place tomatoes, jalapeno's, onion and garlic onto skillet. Roast for approximately 30 minutes on medium to medium high heat; turning ingredients occasionally to roast all sides. Remove from skillet and place into food processor; add lime juice and cilantro; Blend using the pulse setting until salsa reaches desired consistency. This can be as pureed or chunky as you like. Pour into serving bowl or container to refrigerate. Salsa tastes better after the flavors sit for a few hours.
