Best Roasted Salsa RecipeTagged in Vegetarian
Notes: This recipe makes a fairly hot salsa.
Notice the total absence of onion - it takes away from the flavor.
I use a food processor, and will give directions accordingly...
De-stem the fresh peppers. Set aside one of each.
Heat oven to HIGH, and start a pot of water boiling.
Put remaining fresh peppers and garlic on a baking tray and
roast - turning frequently, until peppers are blackened.
Garlic will need to come out a few minutes BEFORE the
Meanwhile, as peppers are roastig, heat a skillet on
MEDIUM. Stem and de-seed the 2 dried peppers, and then
press down in skillet with a spatula. After a few
seconds (they should smoke gently and crackle), flip and
repeat. Place in bowl of water for 30 minutes.
Take blackened peppers from oven. Discard skins from the
green ones (jalapenos). De-seed all the roasted peppers,
and toss into food processor (leave the blackened skins on
the red ones). Remove the skins from the roasted garlic and
place into the food processor.
After the roasted dried peppers are re-hydrated, toss them
into the food processor, too. Then, skin the remaining 2
non-roasted fresh peppers, and toss into processor (leave
the seeds in for a bitingly hot salsa - yummm)
With the chopping blade in the processor, reduce the above
mixture to a coarse paste, and place into a large bowl.
Switch blade to the one that grates.
One by one, scald tomatoes in boiling water, core, and
remove the skins.
Grate the tomatoes, and then add (juice and pulp) to the
roasted/fresh pepper and garlic mixture. Salt to taste -
riper tomatoes need less salt. This really needs to sit
covered in the refrigerator overnight for the flavor to
Serve with white corn tortilla chips. This is incredibly
GOOD!! I've experimented a lot, and this is the best salsa
I have ever made...
