Smokey Salsa Mexicana Recipe
2 large Tomatoes
1 medium-sized Spanish Onion
2 cloves Garlic
2 tbsps Cilantro, chopped
½ Lime, juiced
Preheat a cast-iron skillet on high heat. Cut the tomato and onion in half and place all the vegetables in the skillet. You want them to form a charred skin on each side.
Disclaimer: Beware, the kitchen will get super smokey at one point!
Once the vegetables get a decent char on them, move them into a bowl and blend them until they resemble a chunky salsa. Add the cilantro and some lime juice. Season with salt and serve! You can absolutely char your veggies in the oven under the broiler or on your grill if you do not have a cast-iron skillet. This smokey salsa Mexicana would be ideal in the summer paired with a Cerveza and some chips!
I’m super thankful that I was taught this recipe by our awesome friends Mariana and Sylvain, and can firmly say that it is a traditional Mexican salsa recipe.
