Yes, you can whip up fresh tomato salsa in minutes, but with just a little extra effort, you can enjoy the rich, smoky flavor of roasted tomato salsa.
Want to kick the flavor up a notch? Roast jalapeño along with the tomatoes for a sweet-and-smoky pepper that’s less spicy than raw jalapeño.
Pro tip: For a spicier salsa, add one or two additional jalapenos.
