Easy Homemade Salsa Recipe with Roasted Tomatoes, Onions, & Peppers
A delicious, homemade salsa made with roasted tomatoes, onions, peppers, cilantro, & garlic. You'll never want store-bought salsa again!
- 16 Tomatoes, full size, sliced in half
- 3 Onions, sliced in half
- 20 Peppers, small, sliced in half and seeded, caps removed, Jalapeno (for mild) or Serrano (for spicy)
- 8 cloves Garlic, fresh or minced
- 1 tbsp Salt
- 2 bunches Cilantro leaves, fresh (no stems)
- 1 Lime, juiced
- 1/2 tsp Cumin, ground
- 1 tbsp Sugar, Optional
Preheat oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit. Place the halved tomatoes & onions and the seeded (remove caps) peppers cut side up onto baking sheets.
Add minced garlic or fresh garlic cloves to baking sheet with tomatoes.
Roast in oven for approximately 55 minutes or until tomatoes are wrinkly, onions are translucent, and peppers are charred on the edges.
Allow to cool somewhat and then place all ingredients into a blender, NutriBullet or food processor. Pulse for short spurts until the salsa gets to your preferred consistency.
If you prefer a chunkier salsa, leave a couple of the onions and peppers out of the blender and instead chop them and add back to the salsa after it's been blended.
Transfer prepared salsa into an airtight container such as a mason jar with a lid or any other lidded container. Place in the refrigerator. Salsa will stay fresh in the refrigerator for a week.
