Authentic Mexican Salsa

One of my favorite things to make…and eat of course…is salsa. This recipe is my go to for at home restaurant style salsa that is absolutely delicious!

ingredients:

1 1/2 pounds ripe tomatoes (about 10 medium), preferably plum tomatoes
2 to 3 fresh jalapeño chiles (1 to 1 1/2 ounces), stemmed
half of a small white onion (2 ounces), sliced into 1/4 inch thick rings
4 garlic cloves, peeled
1/4 cup water
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro, loosely packed
1 generous teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons cider vinegar

directions:

Preheat the broiler. Place the tomatoes and jalapeños on a baking sheet. Set pan about 4 inches below broiler and cook for approximately 6 minutes. (they should be darkly roasted). Rotate tomatoes/jalapeños and cook for 6 more minutes on other side. (the tomato skins will split and curl in places). Set aside to cool.

In a food processor, pulse the tomatoes, jalapeños, garlic, cilantro, and onion (including juices from roasting pan) . Spoon into large bowl.  Taste and season with salt and vinegar.

Serve with tortilla chips and guacamole.
