Fire-Roasted Poblano Salsa

Roasting the veggies over an open fire brings a nice smoky flavor to this quick salsa. Excellent with tortilla chips or served over fish tacos. Can easily be adjusted to be mild or spicy by leaving in or removing the jalapeno seeds.

4 cups


  • 1 medium poblano pepper

  • 1 medium jalapeno pepper

  • 2 (14.5 ounce) cans fire-roasted diced tomatoes

  • 1 small white onion, raw

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • ½ cup cilantro, minced

  • 1 medium lime, juiced

  • ¼ teaspoon chipotle powder

  • salt to taste


  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate. Rinse poblano and jalapeno peppers.

  2. Roast peppers and onion on the preheated grill, turning occasionally, until all sides are charred and blistered, 6 to 8 minutes.

  3. Place peppers in a covered bowl for 5 minutes to steam and loosen skins. Scrape skins off peppers using a knife and discard. Slice peppers in half and remove seeds, if desired. Transfer to a food processor or blender.

  4. Add diced tomatoes, onion, garlic, cilantro, lime juice, chipotle powder, and salt to the peppers; pulse for 15 to 20 seconds until desired consistency. Serve immediately or refrigerate for several hours for flavors to blend.
