- 1 pound ripe roma tomatoes
- 1/2 pound fresh chile verde, or Anaheim, Fresno or New Mexico chiles
- 1/4 large white onion, peeled and cut into two
- 2 unpeeled garlic cloves
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 3/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt, or to taste
- Preheat the broiler with the rack adjusted at the highest setting. Cover a baking sheet with foil and place on the tomatoes, chiles, white onion and garlic cloves. Broil for about 10 minutes, flipping the vegetables over halfway through, until charred and the tomatoes are mushy and beginning to release their juices. Remove from the heat.
- Alternatively, you can toast the vegetables on a comal over medium heat, flipping them over every 4 to 5 minutes, until charred.
- Place the chiles in a plastic bag, or in a bowl and cover tightly with plastic. Allow the chiles sweat and cool. Then stem, peel and seed the chiles under a thin stream of water. Peel the garlic cloves.
- Coarsely chop the roasted tomatoes (don’t remove the skin, seeds or core), onion and cleaned chiles and place in a bowl, along with the garlic, and mix with a fork. Alternatively, you can mash them all together in a molcajete. Add the lemon juice and salt to taste, and serve. The salsa will keep for 5 days in the refrigerator.

I am a new viewer to your show, and I love it. I started making some of your salsa recipes and they are amazing. My family loved the shrimp tacos, with your salsa recipe. Your inspiration has totally changed my outlook and exploration of good Mexican food.
Thanks to you Paul, so glad you found me 😉
Can’t wait to make this! My husband is a great cook. He just LOVES you and now so do I! We just watched an episode so now I’m looking up recipes from it! ❤️
Thanks for tuning in you guys! Un abrazo to both of you.
I love your show as much as I love your salsa’s! My name is Geneene Thornton and I live in San Diego with my husband Ed Pooler and our 16 yr. old dog named”Munch” short for Munchkin. I just found your website and I am going to keep my eyes open for more salas and other Mexican dishes. I can hardly wait!!!!!
