Roasted Red Salsa Recipe: 5-Minute Mexican Salsa Recipe for Chips, Tacos & More

Pick the pepper you use for this easy roasted red salsa recipe based on how hot you want it to be. For milder sauce, use a jalapeno or serrano. If you want to up the heat factor, a habanero or even ghost pepper is calling your name. (Be careful! They're hot!)

Cuisine: Mexican
Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 7 minutes

Servings: Makes about 3 cups


  • 6 Roma tomatoes
  • 1 onion, cut in half
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 1 - 2 peppers (jalapenos, fresno, serrano, habanero, etc.)
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro (optional)

Here's how to make it:

  1. Put the tomatoes, onion, garlic and peppers on a baking sheet. Put them under the broiler until they char, about 4 to 5 minutes. (Watch them closely because it happens quickly!)
  2. Put the vegetables and cilantro, if using, into a blender. Blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Serve warm or chilled.
