Salsa Ranchera recipe

Servings: 4
Total Time: 30 minutes
Recipe by: Frankie


1 pound Roma tomatoes
1 jalapeno pepper
1 TBSP olive oil
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp salt
optional: tortilla chips for serving


1. Preheat the broiler on your oven and line a baking sheet with foil.

2. Slice the tomatoes in half and lay on foil lined baking sheet skin-side up.

3. Slice the jalapeno pepper in half lengthwise and discard the seeds. Lay the jalapenos skin-side up on the baking sheet with the tomatoes.

4. Place the tomatoes and pepper in the broiler and cook until they begin to char, about 10 to 12 minutes.

5. Take the tomatoes and pepper out from the broiler and set aside to cool, about 10 minutes.

6. When tomatoes and pepper are cool peel off the skins and discard. Roughly chop the tomatoes and pepper, put them in a blender or food processor and set aside.

7. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, cumin, and salt to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, about 2 minutes. Transfer to the blender with the tomatoes and pepper and blend until pureed.

8. Pour the salsa into a bowl and serve with tortilla chips or use as a sauce.
