Roasted Tomato Salsa

This past weekend was spent preparing for and celebrating my husband's birthday. On Saturday, I woke up ready to go for a full day of sauteeing, roasting, chopping, baking and simmering. Sunday was party day. I threw a football themed mini get together with an assortment of appetizers and chili. A full recap of the party and some of his birthday festivities will come later this week.

Out of the two salsa's we made, I wanted to share my favorite with you.

Roasted Tomato Salsa
2 lb ripe tomatoes
4 fresh green chillies
1 onion, thickly sliced
a bunch of cilantro
fine sea salt
a pinch of sugar
juice of one lime

1. Heat a stove top pan on high high. Add the tomatoes, onion and chillies and cook for 3-5 minutes on each side until charred all over. Let cool.

2. Place all ingredients into a food processor or blender and work into a course puree. Transfer to bowl and stir salt, sugar and lime juice.

3. Chill until needed.
