This is an authentic Mexican salsa recipe from the Jalisco region. It is a basic starter salsa that can be used for cooking or served as table salsa. This is where good Mexican food cooks start.

Directions

  1. Roast tomatoes til blackened in places and tomato is cooked thru. A BBQ pit works great, if not it can be done in oven.
  2. While waiting on the tomatoes: in a small pot, add onion, jalapeno peppers and garlic. Cover with water. Boil until onions are opaque.
  3. On a grill or iron skillet place dry red peppers on very hot surface, turning until blackened. This happens quickly so stand by. Also be sure to have fan on for ventilation.
  4. Place all ingredients in blender and blend to desired consistancy.
  5. Chill and enjoy.
