Directions See How It's Made
- Grill all the vegetables whole and unpeeled (I use charcoal and mesquite wood chunks. Soak the chunks for 1 hour if possible). You Can use raw vegetables also or a gas grill, but you loose some flavor that way. And I call that cheating.
- Next, in a food processor chop onions, garlic and jalepenos (I make mine almost like a puree but a little chunkier).
- Add a lime and 1/2 the chicken broth to the mix and transfer it to a large sauce pan on med-low heat.
- Puree all the tomatoes and add to the other ingredients in the sauce pan.
- Add the spices, limes and lemons (taste after each add to find your sweet spot. We like ours very bold here).
- Last, add the cilantro (again to your taste), remaining chicken broth and more salt if needed.
- Let it simmer 5-10 minutes to incorporate all the flavors and spices.
- Its Great with corn chips or add to any salsa freindly dish.
