How to make Salsa Roja

Salsa Roja aka "Red Sauce" is a thin tomato and chili based salsa from Mexico. The ingredients are charred in a dry hot skillet to give it a smokey flavor and is perfect for chip dipping and serving as a side. It goes well with all meals but especially with tacos, fish and chicken, quesadillas, sandwiches, fried eggs and hash browns.

Salsa Roja

  • 3 Tomato, Quartered
  • ¼ Onion
  • 3 Garlic, Cloves
  • ¼ Jalapeno
  • 1 Lime
  • 1/3 C Cilantro, Chopped
  • Place a large skillet over medium heat. Place the first 4 ingredients in the pan and char on all sides. Cool the veggies, add the lime and cilantro, place in a blender and pulse until chunky.
