foodie moment: blackened tomato salsa

For today’s Food Friday… I am going to show yow how to make a delicious Blackened Tomato Salsa (or as we call it in our house… She She Salsa.. named after my best friend Shelly, because it’s her fave).

First up… your ingredients.

5-7 large tomatoes (chilled)

1 large or 2 smaller Jalepeno Peppers (you can do more if you like it really spicy)

1 can of chicken broth

1 lime

1 red onion

2-3 teaspoons of cilantro

Next Directions…

Put 5 tomatoes on the grill and close. Cook on Med/High until blackened on bottoms (probably at least 15 minutes).

Then flip the tomatoes and add your peppers. Cut off the stem of the peppers before placing it on grill. (I forgot and it’s much easier before. Also, note to everyone… do not touch your face or eyes after touching the peppers. I learned that the hard way today. Oops). Come back after 5-7 minutes and rotate the peppers.

While those are cooking… dice the red onion, cilantro, and 1-2 other tomatoes. Place those in a bowl to the side.

Take off the tomatoes and peppers once blackened on both sides. Place them in a bowl and let them cool off. Squeeze the lime in.

Then, place in the blender and add chicken broth. Puree until smooth (doesn’t take long at all). Add to the bowl of chopped onions, tomatoes, and cilantro. Stir and chill. Enjoy!
