Roasted Salsa

Hi Everyone!

Sorry about not posting last week. It was not a good week for our family. We had someone in the hospital, and had other issues, but this is a new week. Today was wonderful, as I got to spend beautiful quality time with my best friend in the whole world, my husband.

I am also marching forward with writing the book. It is not going as fast as I would like, but I just started and I want it done now! I know Tolkien would say that the journey should be savored, and I will endeavor to listen to his sage advice.

This week I will share a staple of entertaining with my friends, my roasted salsa. I hope this inspires you and helps you spend fun times with the ones you love.

Happy Valentine’s Day!!

Roasted Roma Salsa

makes about 1 1/2-2 cups

4 roma tomatoes
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1 lime, or about 1 1/2 tablespoons of fresh lime juice
2-3 cloves of roasted garlic
1 jalapeno or more and hotter chilies, depending on preference
salt to taste

Heat a heavy skillet over medium heat. Place the tomatoes on the heat, and walk away for 5-10 minutes, until one side is blackened. Rotate. Repeat until cooked on all sides this way. Remove from heat and allow to cool, until you can handle them. Chop roughly, then add to a bowl. Dice the red onion, and mince the roasted garlic. Add to the bowl. Mince the jalapeno, after removing the stem and seeds if desired. Add the juice of the lime, and salt to taste. Serve with sliced zucchini 'chips' or other veggies.
