Spicy Fire Roasted Salsa

Spicy Fire Roasted Salsa

We had friends over for dinner and they requested Mexican food. I made this spicy salsa to serve with chips and the chicken tacos that I was making for dinner (recipe to follow). I started out using 1 jalapeno but it didn’t have a strong enough spice (they turned out to be mild peppers) so I added another jalapeno. I loved the richness the roasted tomatoes gave to this salsa and I thought the tang from the lime was great. It was really flavorful and a big hit with us all, even the kids!

How to Make Spicy Fire Roasted Salsa

Pour the tomatoes into a large mixing bowl. Add the chopped cilantro, green onions, garlic, lime juice, and jalapeno. Toss in the cumin and oregano then season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Blend using an immersion blender until thoroughly combined. Taste then add more jalapeno or seasoning if needed. Cover and set aside for at least 30-60 minutes for flavors to mingle. Serve with chips, tacos, tostadas, eggs, or any of your favorite Mexican dishes. Enjoy.

  1. My husband would love this! The hotter, the better for him. Me, not so much. I am a bit of a wimp with spicy foods! But I love salsa!!!

  2. Oooohhh.. that salsa looks perfect!!! And isn’t it interesting how one jalapeno may blow your head off it’s so hot and others are like eating green peppers!! I like the surprise factor! lol

  3. Looks and sounds very good Pam. When I’m trying to add heat to something, I find small additions of ground cayenne followed by a little rest time before the next one works well, as all it does is add heat.

  4. Pam…do you mind telling us how you prepare the jalapenos for this? I get confused sometimes on whether chopped means the whole thing chopped or first removing the seeds and ribs and then chopping.

    1. Christine,

      I just removed the stem and chopped the remaining jalapeno into chunks then threw it all in the bowl. The immersion blender will chopped it up finely.

      Cheers,
      Pam

  5. I’m so happy you posted this. I know it’s weird but I hate chunky salsa. This looks exactly like what I’ve been searching for. I’m going to make it super hot! Thanks so much, Pam!
