A little time under the broiler intensifies the aroma and flavors of the tomatoes, jalapenos, onion, and garlic, adding a rich, smoky flavor to this spicy dip that's a crowd-pleasing appetizer.

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

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!
