I love me some salsa and I’ve always wanted to learn how to make my own so I decided to research what it takes to make a great salsa. I ended up learning that making salsa is pretty easy. Like, really easy. After pouring over – pun intended – a ton of recipes I ended up finding one that seemed really tasty. The recipe was for a “Chevy’s Original” salsa. I thought yeah right, but it required roasting tomatoes and jalapenos and onion and being that I love to cook on my grill I thought it would be really cool to try it out. Turns out this salsa really does end up tasting like Chevy’s salsa and is super good.
4 tomatoes (about two pounds)
1 large white onion sliced
2 jalapeno peppers
2 teaspoons garlic, minced
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
2 teaspoons salt
1 Tablespoon pepper
Grill the tomatoes, onion, and jalapeno peppers on high (you can also broil the veggies in the oven). Remove when the vegetables are slightly charred and the tomatoes soften and split. Remove the veggies from the grill and let cool. While the vegetables are cooling chop up your cilantro and garlic. Then remove the stems from the jalapenos and core the end of the tomatoes. Put all ingredients into a blender and blend for about 10 seconds. Pour salsa into a container and let chill in the fridge about 15-20 minutes. Serve with your favorite chips.
