This is an easy smoky salsa that can be adjusted to any degree of heat that you like by increasing or decreasing the jalapenos!

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat.

  • 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.

  • Peel tomatoes and drain excess liquid. Peel and seed peppers.

  • 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 made this for a school project with homegrown chiles and tomatoes. We only had bell peppers and jalapenos and dried cilantro but it turned out great. Read More

Yummy, I thought it made waaaay too much... and four days later I need to make more. Make sure you really blister the peppers, or else it is hard to skin them. (Not the end of the world if the skin is on, just more texture) I did triple the garlic, because that's what I do with every recipe. Other than that - perfect! Read More

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 peppers used all of the other ingredients except the liquid smoke and added a 1/2 tsp sugar. I left the salsa chunky. Sauteed with shrimp and served over pan steamed tilapia. It was great! Read More
