Super Bowl Salsa

Just a quick post today; I made some roasted tomato salsa from a recipe I found on Serious Eats.

Only 7 ingredients including salt. Cut the tomatoes in half, put on a sheet pan cut side up, and sprinkle with salt. Add 1/2 the onion cut in quarters, the jalapeño and a couple of cloves of garlic to the pan and broil for 15-20 minutes.

When finished things should be pretty charred. Peel the garlic and jalapeño and remove the seeds from the pepper unless you like things hot. The garlic smelled delicious after roasting – great for slathering on some French bread I bet.

Put into a food processor and pulse until combined.

I stopped just short of pulsing one too many times; we are making salsa, not soup.

Pour the mixture into a bowl, squeeze in the lemon juice and add finely chopped cilantro. Add salt to taste. The recipe calls for adding sugar as well, but I’m not convinced about that.

Roasted tomato salsa!

I made it a day ahead of time to let the flavors mingle. But I did cheat and tasted it last night. Pretty good stuff. Easy and better than jars. The most time consuming part is the broiling you can finish this in about 30 minutes. Still time to make it before the big game today!
