You can roast your tomatoes for great flavor.Heat up a frying pan or skillet on medium high heat. Place whole tomatoes in the cookware and toast the outside of it until the skin begins to break and split apart. remove from heat and continue with step two.

If you prefer smooth salsa as opposed to chunky just put all this good stuff in the blender.

This is a great addition to any meal. Put it on grilled chicken or grilled steak. Add it to a bowl of beans or eggs. Its a great way to get your full servings of veggies. To change it up add some diced cucumber or diced avocado. put it in a taco or over enchiladas. Sautee it with a teaspoon of olive oil and throw in some shrimp or chicken, or just serve with tortilla chips. It also can be served over a bed of cabbage with a dollop of sour cream and maybe some shredded cheese. The versatility of this salsa is limitless!

Yummy. I was just thinking about trying a new salsa recipe and look what I stumbled on. This sound perfect.

Ohhhhh Yummers, pass the chips please this sounds soo good right now, Carm
