Cinco De Mayo Salsa

dogoffo Posts: 52

Invited to a Cinco De Mayo pool party and was asked to bring the salsa. 

The XL was already fired up so I decided to start by roasting 2 large tomatoes in a skillet so I could save the juices.

Once the skins were charred and flesh was cooked through I added 2 chipotle peppers, a cup of water, and a clove of minced garlic.  

I let everything simmer for a few minutes before pouring it into a blender.


1 cup tomatoes

½ cups onion

½ cup cilantro

4 pickled jalapenos

Juice from 1 lime

½ tsp salt

½ tsp black pepper

½ tsp sugar

Mix in the blended tomatoes and refrigerate for 8 hours.  Once it firms up, adjust the salt to taste
