Fire Roasted Salsa | Creme de la Crumb

Hey hey, I made salsa! Are you excited?? You should be.

Fire Roasted Salsa | Creme de la Crumb

This fire roasted salsa has thee best flavor. As good or better than any restaurant salsa I’ve ever tried.. and that’s sayin’ something because if a restaurant offers salsa on the menu, there’s about a 78% chance I’ve tried it. In fact with Mexican restaurants, I always say you can judge the whole place by the salsa they serve. Please consider the following scenarios:

1) Perfectly chunky-smooth savory and spicy salsa that makes you want to skip the chips and dump it straight into your mouth = the food shall be nothing short of mind-blowing.

2) So-so salsa with mediocre flavor and texture that make you say “meh, it’s alright” = the food will most likely be good but nothing to write home about.

3) Terrible salsa with either no flavor or terrible flavor (too sweet: YUCK), or nasty texture (baby food anyone?) = watch out, you’ll probably wish you’d opted for Taco Bell.

4) No salsa = high-tail your britches out of there, what kind of Mexican restaurant doesn’t serve salsa?!

Fire Roasted Salsa | Creme de la Crumb

This salsa would easily fit into scenario 1: addictive flavor and spot-on texture, perfect for dunking tortilla chips and goes amazingly with tacos, rice and beans, enchiladas, tamales, tostadas, burritos, taquitos, or just about any other Mexican dish you can imagine.

And all of that flavor comes from just 8 simple ingredients. Start with smoky fire roasted tomatoes, then add jalapeños for some kick, green chiles, cilantro, lime, salt, garlic, and onions. That’s it! And about 2 minutes in your blender or food processor will do the trick. You won’t be able to resist some sampling but if you have the extra time, chill it for at least an hour before serving for maximum yummy flavor!

I love love love this. It is the first salsa recipe I have found that turned out as good as it sounded.
If I wanted to sweeten this up, with cherries or even corn – do you think that would keep the flavors. (I would add it as a stir-in once I have finished blending.)
Thanks for such awesome healthy recipes.

    Hi Christina! Thanks for your sweet comment! You could definitely add corn or diced cherries at the end!

Awesome recipe, Tiffany! I made this for our BBQ this weekend and it came out great

    Yes! So happy that you loved it!! 🙂

I have an abundance of cherry tomatoes. Can this salsa be canned in a hot water bath the way its written?Its delicious

    Hi Karen!! I actually have never canned this recipe before, so I can’t say for sure. I think it could work tho, but from my understanding, you need something acidic like for preservation (such as vinegar or an alike) that this recipe doesn’t call for. Do a little bit of research on that first before using this recipe!
