Roasted Tomato Salsa

Tomato SalsaI adore the salsa at Pappasitos. Especially when paired with their light as air chips. The salsa is served warm along side the warm chips. Perfection. This salsa is lacking the fire roasted flavor of the salsa at Pappasitos, but it is delicious nonetheless. I am still working on figuring out how to fire roast tomatoes at home...any ideas? If you like a salsa with a lot of fresh flavor, this is worth a try.
Roasted Tomato Salsa

4 tomatoes, quartered and seeded
2 garlic cloves, halved and peeled
¼ onion, peeled
½ jalapeno, seeded
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
¼ teaspoon salt

Preheat the oven to 475. Toss the tomatoes, garlic, onion and jalapeno with the olive oil. Arrange the mixture on a foil lined baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes or so. Cool.

Pulse the cooled tomatoes, garlic, onion and jalapeno in a food processor. Stir in the lime juice, cilantro and salt. Serve with chips.

I roast the tomatoes and peppers on the grill outside until the edges are charred before throwing them in the Cuisinart.

I have no grill, I know, I know...I need to get one.

If you have a gas range, you can also hold the veggies over the flame with tongs or a long fork.

If you have electric, you're out of luck - better start grill shopping!

We've got a gas range, but how do you stop the tomatoes from becoming a watery mess? I have roasted bell peppers that way before, but I worry tomatoes would create a disaster scene.

Hey! I made this salsa last night. After taking a taste, I added a little bit of cumin and some generous shakes of ancho & arbol chili powder. It gave the salsa a little bit of that smoky flavor that's in Pappasito's dip. Thanks for the recipe! :)

Those are great suggestions. I am going to try adding ancho and arbol chili powder, so smart!

I too loved the salsa at Pappasitos!! Their salsa is the best! We miss going there since our retirement to E. Tennessee.
