Salsa Recipe

Here is a recipe I will def be trying! We have tomatoes and hot peppers in our garden this year just for Salsa making !!

Fire-Roasted Salsa

About 2 cups
Active Time: 
Total Time: 


  • 2 large ripe tomatoes (see Canned-tomato Variation)
  • 1 large jalapeño pepper
  • 2 small cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat grill to high (or preheat broiler).
  2. Grill tomatoes and jalapeño, turning frequently, until charred, 10 minutes for the tomatoes, about 5 minutes for the jalapeño. (To broil, place on a baking sheet and broil about 4 inches from the heat, turning once or twice, until charred, 8 to 10 minutes total.)
  3. When cool enough to handle, core the tomatoes and remove the stem from the jalapeño. Place in a food processor along with garlic; pulse to form a chunky mixture. Season with salt to taste.


  • Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
  • Canned-tomato Variation: No fresh tomatoes? Drain two 14-ounce cans of fire-roasted tomatoes. Roast jalapeño in a small dry skillet over medium heat, turning occasionally, until soft and blackened in spots, 10 to 15 minutes. Pulse the drained tomatoes, jalapeño and garlic in a food processor until chunky.
