We were blessed with neighbors who share. When they brought over some tomatoes from their garden, we made salsa roja. This recipe is so good because roasting brings out so much more flavor. I would say this salsa is very mild. I would add a couple more peppers next time.Print
- 8–10 roma tomatoes
- 2 jalapeño peppers
- 1/2 yellow onion
- 5 cloves of garlic
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 bunch of cilantro
- Cut tomatoes and onion in half and place on a baking sheet cut side up.
- Place garlic and peppers whole on the baking sheet.
- Roast everything together at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes.
- Blend in the food processor with cilantro until almost smooth.
