Salsa Recipe


  • 2 to 2.5lb tomatoes (roma is good)
  • 1 Large onion (yellow or white, quartered and peeled)
  • 2 Jalapeno peppers
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup Fresh Cilantro
  • 3 cloves garlic (or more if you prefer)
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1.5 teaspoons pepper


Broiling or grilling the tomatoes, onion and jalapeños give this salsa recipe the smoky flavor. No liquid smoke needed.

Roast tomatoes, quartered onions and jalapeños on grill. Alternatively, you can slather them in olive oil and broil them for 10 minutes, flipping tomatoes, onion and jalapenos. Broil in oven for another 10 minutes. Tomatoes, onion and jalapeños should have a nice char on them.
Step 2
Remove from oven and let cool. Remove stems and seeds from jalapeños if you do not want spicy salsa.
Step 3
Place cilantro, salt, pepper, garlic, tomatoes, onions and jalapeños in a blender or food processor, pulsing until blended desired consistency.
Step 4
Pour into container and chill.
