smokey salsa

Don’t grab that jar of salsa from the supermarket shelve ! Most likely you already have the ingredients to make an original and kick ass mix in the pantry. Be creative !


Here’s what I have have from the market… You can probably do better going to a farm or farmers market.

Sliced tomatoes, sweet onions (salted and peppered), garlic, and  corn. The corn was barely passable, small kernels, not to tasty. This is because I don’t want to make multiple stops at different places when shopping usually.


Ok, we’re well into summer so don’t be tied to the stove I’m going to grille all the ingredients for the salsa, besides good time for a homebrew while the charcoal is starting.


The corn and garlic first, the garlic rack is a metal piece from a discarded toaster oven. Some wood chips over the coals periodically for smoke.


garlic roasted and corn charred.


A grille pan, a perforated metal pan makes grilling easy for veggies, Looks like there’s some  sliced turnip there too ! Mix the veggies with some olive oil prior to grilling.


onions are done.


tomatoes are next with the turnip, the turnip didn’t cook long enough with the onions.


mix everything together, add and/or  adjust seasoning preferences, if possible let stand to meld flavors.

Since chili peppers were not available, I used a combination of pepper flakes, smoked ancho, habernero, and jalapeno for heat and spice.


Most would serve this with corn chips, didn’t have any or the time to roll some out as I was hungry . Wrapped a small portion  of the salsa in romaine  lettuce leaves, probably better for me  than chips !

You probably associate salsa with a tomato based type from a jar, it can be any combination !
