Roasted Tomato and Jalapeno Salsa

There is nothing like late night TV, chips and salsa.  I have made salsa time and time again.  I love it.  It’s easy, it keeps well in the refrigerator and it’s healthy.

This time around I decided to roast 1/2 the tomatoes and 1 pepper I had gotten in my CSA box.  Roasting the veggies gave the salsa a nice rich depth and a nice sweetness to the salsa.  My family loved it.

I love making salsa because there are no measurements. Throw it all into a food processor and go.

This is what I used to make mine:


  • Four tomatoes (2 roasted, 2 roughly cut up) and 1 jalapeno pepper roasted
  • 1 onion
  • 1 handful of cilantro
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • pinch of salt
  • black pepper to taste

If you have never roasted veggies before it’s easy.  Just put your veg on the bottom of a shallow roasting pan and drizzle with olive oil. Roast in a 400 degree oven until soft and the skins are a little dark.  Let cool completely.

It’s up to you if you want to leave the seeds of the pepper in the salsa or take them out.  We like our a little on the hot side.

Throw the cooled veg into a food processor with the rest of the ingredients and pulse until well blended.

Store in an airtight container.  Enjoy whenever.  Jeff and I like ours on the couch while watching Storage Wars. haha.
