Roasting the tomatoes, onions, peppers, and garlic together in this mix gives the salsa a fantastic smokey flavor:

Roasted Tomato Salsa
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Appetizers
Serves: 2-3
  • 12-14 whole roma tomatoes halved and seeded
  • 2 whole garlic cloves peeled
  • 1 whole jalapeno peppers halved and seeded
  • 2 whole onions, quartered
  • ½ cup cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
  1. Roast the tomatoes, garlic, jalapeno, and onions in 500˚ oven for 45 min (the first time you do this check sooner.) My mother likes her tomatoes dark. I let mine bake for about 30 minutes. I also used foil so I wouldn't have to scrub the pan later.
  2. After the tomato mixture cools, place tomatoes, cilantro, and lemon juice in a food processor and pulse to desired consistency
  3. I also opted to add half a chipotle pepper in adobo sauce to add a little spicy/smokey flavor.
