Smokey Sweet Salsa

When asked what’s your greatest weakness when it comes to food, the answer without question is chips and salsa. Self-control is hard for me anytime I am in the presence of warm chips and homemade salsa. The good news for you is I have the world’s best salsa recipe to share. This is a frequently requested recipe by friends.

I met Hailey while working in Lubbock and she introduced me to this recipe. I’ll never forget the day she brought in a huge tub of this salsa and we all devoured it. I couldn’t believe how amazing it tasted. She would bring in this dip periodically and we would grab a big bag of the Market Street tortilla chips and by the end of the day it was gone.

Here is how you make the Salsa

Ingredients

  • 7-8 Roma tomatoes cut in half
  • 1 small white sliced onion
  • 1 jalapeno cut in half
  • 3-4 garlic cloves
  • Olive oil
  • ½ cup cilantro
  • 1-2 Chipotle peppers with Adobo sauce
  • Salt
  • Juice from 1 lime

Instructions

  1. Place tomatoes, onions, garlic and jalapenos on a baking sheet. Drizzle lightly with olive oil and salt. Bake 400° until veggies are roasted (roughly 20 – 30 min)
  2. Halfway through the cook time pull the baking sheet out and stir to ensure all sides are getting cooked
  3. Add all roasted veggies to a blender and add the cilantro, adobe peppers and lime juice. Blend until well mixed
  4. Taste and adjust flavor and heat by adding more peppers, salt and lime juice.
  5. Serve warm and enjoy

Homemade chips are always a good choice to serve with this salsa however a close second is Julio’s Tortilla Chips, made right here in Texas. They can be found at most grocery stores in Texas. If you need a recipe for a gathering or a night in with the family this dip will not disappoint.
