Roasted Tomato Salsa

With tomato season in full gear why not try making homemade salsa. You will need -

4 large, ripe but still firm tomatoes
3 jalapeno peppers
3 cloves garlic, unpeeled
1 medium red onion, quartered
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
salt and pepper to taste

Put vegetables on a sheet pan and cook in oven at 500, or on a charcoal or gas gill over medium heat, until nicely charred and blistered, about 30 minutes in oven, less time on grill.

Core, but don't peel the tomatoes. Peel, stem and seed the peppers. Peel the garlic, and remove the skin from the onion.

Puree garlic in food processor; add the onion and pulse a few times. Add tomatoes and peppers and pulse until you achieve the texture you desire.

Pour into a bowl and add cilantro, salt, and pepper. Let sit an hour for flavors to meld and temperature to cool. Serve with chips. Enjoy!
