  • 1 red bell pepper

  • ½ - 1 jalapeño or serrano pepper, halved

  • 4 Roma tomatoes

  • ½ small sweet onion, cut into wedges

  • 3 cloves garlic, unpeeled

  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • ½ cup fresh cilantro leaves

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice

  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat air fryer to 380°F. Remove and discard stems from bell pepper and jalapeño (or serrano). If desired, remove and discard seeds. Coarsely chop the bell pepper. Transfer the peppers to a large bowl. Add tomatoes, onion and garlic. Drizzle with oil and toss to coat.

  2. Working in batches as necessary, arrange the vegetables in an even layer in the air-fryer basket. Cook until lightly browned, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer the vegetables to a wire rack to cool, about 15 minutes.

  3. Peel the garlic cloves, discarding skins. Transfer the garlic and vegetables to a food processor or blender. Add cilantro, lime juice to taste and salt. Pulse until finely chopped.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
