Roma Tomatoes - 8 each

Red Onions - 1 small

Jalapenos - 1 or 2

Fresh Garlic - 2 cloves

Olive Oil - 2 Tbl

Lemon Juice - 1-2 oz

Cilantro, chopped - ½ bushel

Salt & Pepper - to taste!


Chipotle in Adobo (to replace the Jalapenos) - 1 to 2 each

Red Bell Peppers - 1 to 2 each


Toss the tomatoes, onions and jalapeno lightly in the olive oil and cook over a very hot grill until lightly charred on the outside. If your grill grates are too wide you may need to cook or char the garlic on the stove.

Remove from the grill, place in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let set for 15-20 minutes

When cool enough to handle you can either rough chop the vegetables and place in a bowl or blend in a blender. Just depends on whether you like a chunky or smooth salsa.

Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.

Season with salt and black pepper and adjust as needed with more or less lemon and seasoning.
