Now, you have some time to play in the kitchen and the previous quick salsas was OK, but you want something with a little more OOMPH. Enter the roasted salsa.
A roasted salsa can be made with tomatoes or tomatillos. Roasting the ingredients enhances the flavors. Fire roasting is better than gas, but I'm in need of a grill (Donations accepted)
Cover a cookie sheet with foil and place the ingredients on it. For this guide, we will use a gas oven. Set it to broil and put the ingredients 6-10 inches from the flame. We want a tasty char!
Look at these! This is what I'm talking about!
Another awful shot!
Transfer everything to our trusty blender. I don't have a Vitamix or a Blendtec (again, donations accepted!), but a $30 Oster does the job.
Shot from the top. Nothing fancy
Blend to your desired consistency.
Add salt to taste and enjoy. It can be a pinch or a spoonful. If you accidentally oversalt it, you can roast an extra tomato & blend it in to offset the savoryness. Yes, I'm aware I made up that word.
