"This awesome recipe for hearty spiced salsa may have a lot of ingredients, but really, it's all just "to taste". Just try not to skip out on any of them - they each add unique dimension and depth!"

Ready In:
1hr 5mins
2 cups




  • Lay the tomatoes and onions (and peppers, if desired) on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and broil in the oven until skins are dry, hard, and slightly browned, and onions are well-browned (this can take anywhere from 10 minutes to 1 hour, depending on how ripe your tomatoes are).
  • While still hot, remove tomatoes from sheet and place (with skins) in a large ramekin or bowl.
  • Mash the tomatoes slightly.
  • Add in onion and peppers; stir.
  • While still very hot, drop the chocolate chip in and stir until melted.
  • Stir in corn.
  • Stir in next 11 ingredients, stirring well until very well combined.
  • Stir in vinegar and water; stir well (again!).
  • Serve warm or cold, but store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
  • Enjoy!

I'm an enthusiastic young chef who loves to experiment!! I love cooking because i have a multitude of food allergies including all nuts and some legumes, as well as celiac disease. Cooking allows me to enjoy the foods i love without worry! <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> How I rate recipes: 5 star - WOW! This recipe was really good and exceeded my expectations. I made no or little changes to the recipe and will definitely make it again. 4 star - A very good recipe. I quite enjoyed it, but had to make a few changes here and there. All in all, it met my expectations. I will probably make it again. 3 star - An ok recipe. I liked it a bit, but had to make major changes. It may have a good flavour, but the texture was off or something. Usually I don't make three star recipes again. 2 star - I didn't enjoy this recipe. The flavour and texture was WAY off and so were the directions. I will not make this recipe again. 1 star - I don't give one stars! I think they are too mean!
