This Smoked Salsa is an amazing way to enjoy classic salsa infused with smoky flavor. Fresh tomatoes, jalapeno, onion, and garlic are smoked and then blended with herbs and spices to create a salsa that packs a punch.
Servings: 2 cups
- 1 pound steak tomatoes cut into wedges with middle stem removed
- 1/4 cup red onion cut into a wedge
- 1 jalapeno cut in half
- 4 cloves garlic
- 1 cup fresh cilantro leaves
- juice of 1 lime
- salt to taste
Preheat your smoker to 225 degrees F.
Place tomatoes, onion, jalapeno, and whole garlic cloves directly on the grill grates. Close the lid and smoke for 90 minutes.
Add smoked tomatoes, onion, jalapeno and whole garlic to a blender jar or food processor. Add in the lime juice, cilantro, and salt and pulse until salsa reaches desired consistency.
Add salt to taste. Eat immediately if you like hot salsa. For cold salsa, transfer to a lidded glass jar and refrigerate for 24 hours before serving. This salsa tastes great when allowed to sit for a bit of time to allow all the flavors to combine.
