Grilled Salsa

Grilled Salsa

4 large firm tomatoes
2 to 4 jalapenos
1/2 of a medium onion
3 tablespoons olive oil or vegetable oil
1/4 cup cilantro
3 cloves garlic
1/2 teaspoon cumin

Rub oil over tomatoes, jalapenos, and onion. 

Grill over high heat until chard on all sides.  

Remove stem from tomatoes.  Cut top off of jalapenos.  Slice jalapenos lengthwise.  Scrape out seeds.

Combine all ingredients in blender.  

Cover.  Blend until well mixed

When we were in Mexico last month, my husband could not get enough of this salsa.  After asking several people, I finally got the recipe. The key to making this salsa is getting the vegetables as charred as possible.  The more char, the better the flavor.

I am in Cape Town, South Africa.
