Fresh, flavorful and simple ingredients are roasted and blended together to make the absolute best salsa ever! Hot or mild, it’s delicious either way! Isn’t there just something wonderful about recipes that are made with fresh ingredients? This salsa is so easy, yet the simple ingredients are a delight to the senses!
Looks great, tastes great and smells great!
Just place your yummy ingredients on a grill pan or baking sheet and roast on your grill or in the oven. I love all kinds of salsa, after all, I’m a New Mexican and I’ve enjoyed Mexican food all my life! This is great with tortillas chips, on tacos (oh yum!) or we enjoy it on grilled chicken or with a southwestern style salad. Versatility and deliciousness are the words here! My recipe is a guideline, and you can adjust it to your liking. We enjoy hot, spicy food so I always leave the seeds in the jalapenos, but if you prefer a more mild salsa it’s easy to decrease the number of jalapenos and remove the seeds after cooking. I place the roasted veggies in a food processor and pulse until I achieve the texture I want. Easy peasy!
Fresh, flavorful and delicious!
I prefer my roasted salsa to have quite a bit of texture, so I definitely make it chunky! I love that you can see bits of everything, including some jalapeño seeds in the salsa. You can just see that it’s fresh and delicious! This flavorful salsa will keep everyone coming back for more.
