I decided I’d roast some jalapeno but I didn’t feel like firing up the grill so I thought I would find out what my broiler could do. Not bad results; I didn’t really end up with the same charing you get from a charcoal fire, but still great results. It adds a new depth of flavor when you roast the jalapeno instead of just adding fresh to salsa or any dish you choose.
- fresh jalapeno
- aluminum foil
Turn broiler on and place jalapeno on foil.
Broil for 5-8 minutes or until skin starts to blister and slight browning occurs. Flip over and cook other side for 4-6 minutes until blistered as well. Place in ziplock bag and let rest for about 5 minutes to finish softening skin. Remove as much skin as possible and dice or slice to use in your salsa.
Roasted Jalapeno Salsa
- 3 roasted jalapeno
- 1 medium – large tomato
- fresh cilantro
- salt and pepper
- juice of 1/2 a lime
Chop tomato ~ I used an heirloom tomato from my garden so my salsa will be yellow, but very tasty.
Dice roasted jalapeno.
Season with lime juice, salt and pepper; mix well before serving.
Enjoy ~ Kimberly
