  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat.
  2. Rub tomatoes with oil and grill for 10 minutes, turn. Place poblano, Anaheim, jalapeno chiles, and the green pepper on the grill. Grill 5 to 7 minutes per side, being careful not to let them burn. The skins should blister and brown. Remove tomatoes to a separate bowl. Place the chiles and pepper in an airtight container to let them steam while they cool so they're easier to peel.
  3. Peel tomatoes and drain excess liquid. Peel and seed peppers.
  4. Place the tomatoes, chiles, green pepper, cilantro, vinegar, onion, garlic, and salt in the container of a food processor. Pulse 4 or 5 times. Add liquid smoke and more jalapenos if desired. Pulse until salsa is as chunky or smooth as you like.

I have made this twice, both with different types of hot peppers and omitting the liquid smoke...both batches turned out great!

It didn't help me win my salsa contest but I liked it.

Wow, this is the recipe I have been looking for. I wasn't able to get the poblano peppers, so I used 4 jalapeno, and it is good and spicy the way I like it. I've tried many recipes for salsa on ...

I threw everything on the grill, including the onions... Smoked it all until skin blistered and then omitted the liquid smoke... Always a party favorite

Extremely good. Thank you for your tip to cover the peppers to let them steam while they cool to make them easier to peel. Can be modified to suit your needs. I just had poblano and red bell pep...
