A fantastic tasting salsa recipe given to me by an extremely close friend. The flavor of roasted tomatoes and spices tastes great with tortilla chips.

I am always looking for a good salsa recipe. The tomatoes definitly have to be cooked longer than 5 minutes and the flavor was really.."blah". Usually a cooked salsa will be mashed or blended. I am not sure if its supposed to be fresh salsa or not..Not happy..still searching for a good recipe. Read More

The taste of a broiled tomato is delicious! You're not going to be able to "chop" your tomatoes once their broiled because they basically turn to mush but don't fret they're still yummy. If you want a chunkier salsa I suggest chopping up a couple fresh tomatoes without broiling them. As for the actual taste of this salsa it's just "alright" for me. I am not a cilantro fan but my boyfriend & roommate are and they enjoyed it very much. Too much cilantro for me and I didn't even use the entire half cup it calls for. I also roasted up a jalapeno for more heat. Read More

I made the mistake and made it with a jalapeno pepper minus the seeds. VERY BLAND. My grocery store is NOT very diverse so couldn't find the right pepper. Read More

I love salsa and this one was awesome! The broiled tomatoes added a great touch and I did not have any difficulty chopping them. Made a double batch of this for a party and it was the first thing gone. Not a super-spicy salsa but very savory and good. Read More
