If you are a regular reader, you know that I am a fan of Mexican food, and one of my favorite snacks are chips with salsa. My obsession for scratch cooking comes with its drawbacks however, as it won't allow me to open up a jar of store bought salsa. So, I make my own, regardless of how busy or tired I am.
I've already made Red Tomato Salsa and Tomatillo Salsa, and now I want to share with you anther favorite salsa recipe, Roasted Tomato Salsa. This was absolutely delicious and more than worth the effort!

I am a salsa junkie, and this one sounds like it would have great smokey flavor from the roasted tomatoes.
I'd try eating everything with this! I'm not joking!
oh my, pass a big bowl of chips to dip in that lovely bowl 🙂
I love the intense flavor of roasted tomatoes...i feel like they make everything taste better, especially salsa!
I just roasted tomatoes too! They have such amazing flavor - your salsa looks delicious!
I made your recipe for this salsa yesterday and it was amazing! Thanks.
I like fire roasting the veggies for tomato salsa or salsa verde recipes, definitely concentrates the flavors.

Roasting brings out the flavors. I always have a jar at hand in my fridge...
