Here is what you need:
1 1/2- 2 lbs of Roma Tomatoes
2 small or 1 large Onion
10 cloves of Garlic
2-4 Jalapenos (roast all of them but only add one at a time to the blender until desired spice level)
1 bunch of Cilantro
2 tbsp of Olive Oil
1/2-1 tsp of Salt
1/2 tsp of pepper
2 Limes juiced
Here is what you do:
Slice and season veggies, broil for 15-20 minutes and let cool for about 30 minutes. Then you will dump the veggies and juices from the pan to a blender and add the cilantro and lime juice and check the seasoning. Cool and then eat!
Makes about 2 pints
Preheat your oven to broil. Slice your tomatoes in half and the tops off of your jalapenos. Quarter your onions and remove the skin from your garlic.
Next, season with 2 tbsp of olive oil and salt and pepper. Line a baking sheet with foil and spread your veggies out.
Broil your veggies for 15-20 minutes.
Your house will smell incredible.
Let the veggies cool for about 30 minutes, then transfer to a blender. Only add one jalapeno at first and make sure you get all the yummy juices from the pan in the blender. Try to keep the onions near the bottom so they can breakdown easier. Now, blend away! Taste this and if you want it more spicy, add another pepper and repeat. Keep doing this until the spice level is how you like it.
When this has been blended to your liking, add the fresh lime juice and cilantro. Blend again and then adjust the seasonings to your taste. I usually add a bit more salt at this point.
My husband and I hope you love this recipe as much as we do. Especially my husband, who now says that he knew all along what he was doing when he bought 8 jalapeno plants.
