I saw this on PBS with Rick Bayless. He is a wonderful chef that cooks Mexican food and really knows his stuff. This is by far the BEST salsa I have ever had. The roasted flavor of the veggies is amazing! You could even use flavored wood chips in the grill to add more flavor. Anyway, I hope you try it--it is truly wonderful!
