Fire Roasted Salsa – BudgetByte$ (Video)

This Fire Roasted Salsa from Beth over at BudgetByte$ is an outstanding recipe, and easy to make. Roasting the veggies makes this salsa stand out with its smoky-sweet flavors, you’ll want to make this again and again!

You can learn more about Beth here.  I LOVE that her recipes are truly affordable, yet very delicious!!

It’s my son’s all-time favorite salsa to use when making shredded chicken quesadillas.  We usually double the ingredients since it freezes beautifully.  I used my Half Sheet Pan to roast the veggies, here’s some info on this product:

This professional-grade Half Sheet Pan is perfect for family dinner! It combines the strength and durability of steel with the superior heat conduction of aluminum—just like the pans professional bakers choose. The coating prevents food from sticking and keeps your pan looking great. The rolled edges and wire rims prevent warping, and the high sides keep food from overflowing. 

Details

  • 12″ x 17″ x 1″.
  • Heavy-gauge aluminized steel resists corrosion and provides even heat distribution.
  • Conventional- and convection-oven safe.
  • Broiler- and freezer-safe.
  • Dishwasher-safe.
  • Three-year guarantee.

To process all of the ingredients together, I used my Flex+ Multi-Prep Set, here’s some info on that product:

3 Cordless Prep Tools in One

Slicing, chopping, grating, pureeing, emulsifying, mixing, and blending doesn’t have to be time-consuming or frustrating. With the Flex+, you get three complete cordless, time-saving prep tools in one: an immersion blender, 6-cup (1.5-L) food processor, and a hand mixer, so you can quickly, effortlessly, and safely whip up whatever you’re making, anytime, anywhere.

Just click the power handle to one of the attachments, choose a blade (food processor) or beaters/whisks (hand mixer), pop on one of the batteries, and you’re ready to go. We’ve included two rechargeable batteries to give you about 60 minutes of total run time.

The power handle has push-button control for comfortable one-handed operation. Five speeds (three for the hand mixer) easily adjust during use for flexibility and control. Indicator lights show how much battery life is left and the speed you’re using. A safety lock prevents the Flex+ from accidentally turning on.

This salsa has a depth of flavor that you won’t find in a quick salsa recipe.  I love both kinds of salsa, but I love this one for my quesadillas.  Okay, let’s jump right in!!

Ingredients

  • 1.75 pounds cherry or Roma tomatoes
  • 1 medium poblano pepper
  • 1 medium jalapeño pepper
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 1 medium yellow onion
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 lime
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon sugar

Instructions

Peel garlic, slice onion into quarters. If using Roma tomatoes, cut them in half.

Combine tomatoes, garlic, poblano pepper, jalapeno pepper, onion and olive oil in large bowl, stirring to coat all vegetables with oil.

Place all veggies on sheet pan, and bake at 450⁰ F for 30 minutes; remove from oven and allow to cool.

Peel skin from poblano pepper, and remove seeds from both the poblano and jalapeno peppers.

Place all vegetables, and any accumulated juices, into a food processor or blender.  Add cilantro, juice of one lime, and all of the spices.  Pulse until salsa reaches your desired consistency. 

Serve immediately with chips, or refrigerate to allow the flavors to meld.

That’s it!!  This really is an easy recipe to pull together, and one that I’m sure you will love.  Please be sure to go visit Beth over at BudgetByte$, and tell her I said hello!

Easy Homemade Salsa – A Spicy Perspective (Video)

Would you eat salsa for breakfast? I do! I put it on my eggs, on grilled meats, and of course, with chips. I really love salsa, but I’ve never found one that I found to be restaurant quality – until now. Sommer Collier over at A Spicy Perspective has created the most delicious salsa quick and easy salsa, and I honestly don’t know how I lived without it all these years! You can learn more about Sommer here.

This recipe is not only delicious, it’s super healthy and really comes together quick. I hope to share another salsa recipe with you in a few weeks, which is my other favorite, however because it’s fire-roasted, it takes just a little more time. I love that today’s recipe uses San Marzano tomatoes, they are truly the best canned tomatoes you can get, and I think it makes the difference in quality. Fun fact: if your can of San Marzano tomatoes is marked “certified”, that means the tomatoes were definitely grown n that region, which I believe is near the bottom of Mount Vesuvius.

I used my Flex+ Multi-Prep Set for this recipe. You can check out the info on this product below, it really does a LOT:

3 Cordless Prep Tools in One

Slicing, chopping, grating, pureeing, emulsifying, mixing, and blending doesn’t have to be time-consuming or frustrating. With the Flex+, you get three complete cordless, time-saving prep tools in one: an immersion blender, 6-cup (1.5-L) food processor, and a hand mixer, so you can quickly, effortlessly, and safely whip up whatever you’re making, anytime, anywhere.

Just click the power handle to one of the attachments, choose a blade (food processor) or beaters/whisks (hand mixer), pop on one of the batteries, and you’re ready to go. We’ve included two rechargeable batteries to give you about 60 minutes of total run time.

I love that it’s three products in one, but my favorite feature is that it’s cordless AND the batteries last @ 2hours!!

It made quick work of the salsa ingredients, which left me more time to enjoy it all! Okay, I had to share, but this recipe makes a TON of salsa, and it freezes beautifully. Enough said, let’s jump right in!!

Ingredients

  • 12-ounces cherry tomatoes
  • 1 red onion, peeled and quartered
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 3 jalapenos
  • 1/3 cup fresh cilantro
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2-3 teaspoons cumin
  • 2-3 teaspoons sugar (optional)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 15-ounces San Marzano tomatoes
  • 4.5 ounces diced green chiles, your preference of heat (mild, medium or hot)

Instructions

Peel the garlic, peel and quarter the red onion, juice the lime and remove seeds from jalapenos.

Add all of the ingredients to your food processor. Pulse to desired consistency. Serve with chips.

That’s it! This will stay fresh in the refrigerator up to 14 days, or you can freeze it as well. So easy and delicious, I do hope that you’ll give this a try, let me know if you do. Please do go and visit Sommer over at A Spicy Perspective, and tell her I said hello!!
