Easily customized to your own taste, this restaurant style salsa pairs perfectly with chips, scrambled eggs, enchiladas, and more!
We eat salsa on just about anything, from more traditional Mexican fare to our (in)famous clean-out-the-fridge skillet meals. There’s generally a purchased jar or two in our fridge at all times, and we have a great pico de gallo recipe for the summer when tomatoes are in full force. Being such a salsa fan, I was surprised to only recently become introduced to a new salsa concept – roasted tomato salsa. We purchased some to go with our black bean tostadas, and it was so good that I was itching to replicate the concept. This recipe was my first time trying to reverse engineer a recipe from the back of a label, but a few tries and some internet research resulted in a restaurant style salsa that fit both of our tastes.
The great thing about salsa is that you can easily customize it – just add the amount of ingredients to your own liking! We enjoyed the smoky, slightly sweet taste of this version; it’s a great variation while we wait for our new tomato plants to get started. Incidentally, we rarely eat salsa with chips, but since we had some leftover tortillas we tried our hand at homemade tortilla chips. I was pleasantly surprised at how good they were; they were much less greasy than the store-bought version.
