Roasted Tomato and Oregano Salsa

This salsa goes wonderful with grilled chicken or steak. The roasted tomato and jalapenos give any dish a distinct taste and the fresh oregano leaves add phenomenal flavor. Try it on steak tacos, pictured above, or serve it with tostadas and guacamole as an appetizer.


3-4 small tomatoes

2-3 jalapenos or serrano peppers

1/4 white onion

3  garlic cloves

a small bunch of fresh cilantro with the stems

4-5 tbsp. fresh oregano

2-3 tbsp. tomato bouillon according to taste

1/4 cup water

1/4 cup tomato sauce

Place tomatoes and jalapenos on an outside or stove-top grill until charred

Place tomatoes, jalapenos, and the rest of the ingredients (except oregano) in a blender and blend until smooth

Place salsa in small saucepan and cook for 10-15 minutes.

Turn heat off and add oregano

Taste and add more tomato bouillon if desired
