I’ve made plenty of homemade salsas over the years and this has to be the best method for making salsa.
Roasting the tomatoes, Chiles, Garlic and peeling the tomato skin. You just know, it’s going to be good. The color and consistency is perfect, and that’s important for me.
I like my salsa red and not too chunky or too loose. I want to feel like I’m eating Salsa! Not pico de gallo or Hot Sauce. Just fresh homemade salsaPrint
This homemade salsa recipe might just be the best way to make fresh salsa. Roasted chilis give the perfect amount of heat, and the texture makes it the perfect addition to any party or taco night.
