Fire-Roasted Salsa

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/fire_roasted_salsa.html

From EatingWell:  May/June 2010

Charring fresh tomatoes and jalapeños on the grill gives this chunky pureed salsa great fire-roasted flavor. It works just as well under the broiler and even tastes delicious made with canned fire-roasted tomatoes.

About 2 cups | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat grill to high (or preheat broiler).
  2. Grill tomatoes and jalapeño, turning frequently, until charred, 10 minutes for the tomatoes, about 5 minutes for the jalapeño. (To broil, place on a baking sheet and broil about 4 inches from the heat, turning once or twice, until charred, 8 to 10 minutes total.)
  3. When cool enough to handle, core the tomatoes and remove the stem from the jalapeño. Place in a food processor along with garlic; pulse to form a chunky mixture. Season with salt to taste.
