A little time under the broiler intensifies the aroma and flavors of the tomatoes, jalapenos, onion, and garlic here, adding a rich, smoky flavor to this salsa.

Ingredients

  • 9 plum tomatoes, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 large white onion, quartered
  • 3 jalapeno chiles, plus more if desired
  • 2 garlic cloves, unpeeled
  • Coarse salt

Cook's Note

This salsa can be covered and refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat broiler. Place tomatoes, onion, jalapenos, and garlic on a rimmed baking sheet. Broil until tomatoes and jalapenos are charred, about 7 minutes. Let stand until cool enough to handle.

  2. Step 2

    Peel the roasted garlic. Transfer to a blender along with the charred tomatoes, onion, jalapenos, and 1 tablespoon salt. Puree until smooth. For a thinner consistency, add water as needed. Season with salt to taste.

    Very rich flavor with so few ingredients. I'll be making these to give away this summer. <3

    Oh and only close to a tsp of salt!

    This is very good. I used six medium- large home grown tomatoes, 4 cloves garlic & 2 large Jalpenos. It was plenty hot with 2!

    Easy to make and delicious! However, 1 tablespoon of salt was too much for me...next time I will omit that and add it to taste. I also used less jalapenos!

    I first made this salsa 4 months ago and I still make it about once a week. It is incredibly easy and is far superior to any purchased salsa, "fresh" or otherwise.
    It is easy to control the heat by adjusting the number of jalapenos. I like it on the spicy side, so I roast a tomatillo along with the other vegetables.
    Great recipe!
