Roasted Salsas

Over the holidays I hosted a taco party at my house for 30 of my friends.  Instead of buying all the salsas, I decided to make it myself.  I made Pico de GalloOrange Sauce, and the roasted salsas below.  hey all turned out great and super easy to make.  In the future when I am too lazy to dice up all the ingredients for Pico de Gallo, I’ll just make these salsas quickly to have more time to do other stuff.

Roasted Tomato Salsa Ingredients:

7 Roma tomatoes, halved
4 garlic cloves
1 jalapeno, halved (more if you want it spicier)
1/2 medium white onion
cilantro, finely chopped
salt and pepper
Steps:
Roast Tomato Salsa Ingredients– Place tomatoes, garlic cloves, jalapeno(s), and white onion on a baking sheet and broil in the oven until softened and blackened for about 5-7 minutes.  Remove baking sheet from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes.



















Blend Tomato Salsa Ingredients – Add the salsa ingredients plus cilantro, salt, and pepper and pulse until combined and chunky.

Tips:
  • If you do not have agave syrup, add honey.  If you don’t have honey, add sugar.
  • I add agave syrup because tomatillos can be super sour, but you don’t really have to add it
  • Remove jalapeno seeds for less spicy version
  • Add more jalapeno plus seeds for spicier version
