    little_wing's Note:

    The caramelized tomatoes and tequila really give great flavor to this. Use as little or as much jalapeño as to suit your tastes. You can use the grill instead of the broiler to char the tomatoes if desired. Hope you enjoy!

      I just made this. Added chipotle as well as the jalepeno and a couple tomatoes that were not charred. Hasn't chilled yet but the taste test was very good!

      I prepared this dish for ZWT3 Mexico Gadgets Challenge. DH & I loved this salsa! The flavors were strong and smoky. I roasted the jalapenos along with the tomatoes. I think the big difference between this salsa and others is the addition of the tequila, which I used a high quality tequila. This is going into my "Favorites" cookbook. I highly recommend this salsa! Thanks Little Wing!
