Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 pounds Roma tomatoes (about 6) sliced in half
  • 2 large jalapeños stems and seeds removed, and sliced in half lengthwise
  • 1 medium sweet onion peeled, and sliced in quarters
  • 4 medium garlic cloves unpeeled
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, roughly chopped (packed), more or less to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  • Place the tomatoes, jalapeños, onion, and garlic in a mixing bowl. Pour the olive oil over and toss well to combine.
  • Spread the vegetables onto a lined sheet pan, in a single layer. Roast the vegetables for 20-25 minutes, or until they start to blacken in spots. Turn them after about 15 minutes, so they cook evenly.
  • When the vegetables are cooked, remove from the oven and let them cool for about 5 minutes.
  • When the vegetables are cool enough to handle, remove the skins from the garlic, and place all of the vegetables into a blender or food processor, along with the salt, cumin, and lime juice.
  • Pulse several times or blend/process to almost desired consistency. Add the cilantro, and pulse 3-4 more times to incorporate.
  • Taste and adjust any seasonings. Serve warm with chips or vegetables.

Notes

This makes about 2 cups of salsa
