This recipe makes 4 cups of amazing salsa in 15 minutes. What are you waiting for (and why are you still buying salsa)?
  • 3 - 4 vine ripe tomatoes
  • 1 sweet onion
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 serrano peppers
  • half a bunch (half a cup or so) of cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  1. Preheat the broiler and set a rack a few inches below. Cover a large rimmed baking sheet with heavy duty aluminum foil.
  2. Roughly chop the tomatoes (quartering them is fine), and place them cut-side down on the foil. Roughly chop the onion into a few wedges, and add them to the pan.
  3. Add the garlic and serrano peppers (clip the stems off of the peppers before or after roasting).
  4. Broil the pan for about 10 minutes. Check in on the pan. It's done when everything is nicely charred.
  5. Transfer the contents of the pan to the bowl of a food processor (you may want to wait for it to cool a bit first).
  6. Add the cilantro, cumin, and lime juice, and process the batch until it looks like salsa!
