Spicy Fire Roasted Salsa

We had friends over for dinner and they requested Mexican food. I made this spicy salsa to serve with chips and the chicken tacos that I was making for dinner (recipe to follow). I started out using 1 jalapeno but it didn’t have a strong enough spice (they turned out to be mild peppers) so I added another jalapeno. I loved the richness the roasted tomatoes gave to this salsa and I thought the tang from the lime was great. It was really flavorful and a big hit with us all, even the kids!

Pour the tomatoes into a large mixing bowl. Add the chopped cilantro, green onions, garlic, lime juice, and jalapeno. Toss in the cumin and oregano then season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Blend using an immersion blender until thoroughly combined. Taste then add more jalapeno or seasoning if needed. Cover and set aside for at least 30-60 minutes for flavors to mingle. Serve with chips, tacos, tostadas, eggs, or any of your favorite Mexican dishes. Enjoy.

    Jason would love this! Although I’m sure I’ll have to add a couple more jalapeños – Jason is a spicy food fanatic!

    Looks and sounds very good Pam. When I’m trying to add heat to something, I find small additions of ground cayenne followed by a little rest time before the next one works well, as all it does is add heat.

    Pam…do you mind telling us how you prepare the jalapenos for this? I get confused sometimes on whether chopped means the whole thing chopped or first removing the seeds and ribs and then chopping.

      Christine,

      I just removed the stem and chopped the remaining jalapeno into chunks then threw it all in the bowl. The immersion blender will chopped it up finely.

      Cheers,
      Pam
