About this Recipe

This salsa is sure to be a crowd pleaser. We char the vegetables, which adds rich, earthy, smoky flavor to this classic Mexican salsa. For fans of milder salsa, remove the seeds from or omit the jalapeño. And for those that like it extra spicy, add a second jalapeño!

  • 4-6 peeled garlic cloves
  • 1 halved jalapeño, stem removed
