Salsa de jitomate ingredients

- On a medium hot skillet, roast tomatoes and jalapeños. Making sure that you are cooking the tomatoes as well as roasting. Do this by rotating them and roasting on all sides. Otherwise you end up with a raw tomato on the inside.

- Once roasted, peel tomatoes and jalapeños as much as possible leaving some of the roasted skin.
- Blend all until smooth and all salt to taste.

Blending Salsa de Jitomate

Can it get any easier? It sounds crazy to only use those ingredients, I know, but trust me it doesn’t need much else. Using simple ingredients is what makes a difference between an Americanized salsa and real homemade Mexican food.
