Charred Tomato Salsa

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by little_wing

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!
