This wicked easy restaurant-style salsa is quick, easy, and beyond delicious! You'll never again rush to a restaurant or resort to a jar to get your fix now that you have this tasty recipe in your arsenal!
Line a baking sheet with foil and roast tomatoes, halved or whole, for 10-15 minutes on the center rack of the oven.
Don't be alarmed when the skin of the tomatoes peels back a bit during cooking; some will bubble, some may turn inside out, but its totally normal!
Once they're nice and toasty, remove from oven and allow your tomatoes to cool a bit.
Decide if you want mild, medium, or spicy salsa. For mild, use a spoon to scoop out the insides from the jalapenos (ribs + seeds) entirley. For medium, leave some of the seeds in tact. For spicy - leave all the goodies in your jalapenos (minus the stem of course) and feel free to add extra if you'd like!
Roughly chop your onion and jalapeño. Smash, peel, then mince garlic. Start with one clove as extra can always be added after.
Toss everything but the cilantro in the food processor and pulse a few times and blend to your favorite level of smoothness or chunkiness.
Once blended, add some finely chopped cilantro to taste.
Allow to cool to room temperature and dig in face first with some chips or veggies!
Feel free to serve with a side of fresh lime wedges to add burst of citrus to your salsa!
Recipe yields 1 heaping cup of salsa or approx. 4 quarter-cup servings.
