Ingredients

  • 7

    medium chilled tomatoes ( not too ripe, they should be firm)

  • 2

    small jalapeño peppers

  • 1

    dried chipotle pepper

  • 2

    cloves garlic

  • 1

    teaspoon salt

  • 2

    teaspoons lime juice

  • 2

    slices + tablespoons diced white onions

  • 2

    tablespoons cilantro, chopped

Directions

Preheat your barbecue grill (high temp). Remove stems from tomatoes and place 6 of them directly on the heated grill, stem side down.Roast them for 20 to 30 minutes, or until the grilled side is very charred. Turn them over, throw the jalapeno pepper (minus the stem) on the grill with the tomatoes, and grill for an additional 20 to 30 minutes, or until both the tomatoes and the jalapeno are blackened.Turn the pepper periodically to blacken all surfaces. grill onion slices Remove the tomatoes, onion slices and jalapeno from the grill, place them in a bowl, and allow them to cool for 10 to 15 minutes. Once cooled, dump the contents of the bowl into a blender, add the garlic and salt, and puree on high speed. Add water and blend again for 30 to 45 seconds. The sauce will darken as the charred tomato bits are chopped finer. Pour the contents of the blender into a bowl. Dice the remaining tomato and add it to the pureed salsa. Stir in the onion and cilantro. Chill before serving.
