  • 3 ripe Tomatoes red, orange or yellow; about 1 1/4 pounds
  • 1 small red onion diced fine
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced roasted garlic

  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

  • In an ungreased iron skillet or comal, roast the jalapenos over medium heat, turning frequently, until blistered and charred, about 5-7 minutes.
  • Remove the jalapenos from the pan and soak them in a bowl of ice water, and when they have cooled, rub off the charred outer skin with your fingers and throw the skin away.
  • Stem and deseed the chiles and dice them very fine, and set aside.

  • Check seasoning in salsa and allow to sit for 1 hour or so before serving to develop flavor.
