Salsa From The Grill

My husband and I are, as he likes to say, ex-TexMex. We are expats from the Lone Star State. We moved away from San Antonio a loooong time ago and have made California home. We have not left our Mexican culture or cooking skills behind, and over the summer have started making our salsas from the barbecue grill instead of stove.

We gather the ingredients in the kitchen before heading outside.

We then transfer the goods into a barbecue basket to start the process slow

Move jalapenos to the grill to slowly blister

Once blistered move them off grill to a plate; move tomatoes to direct heat onto the grill

What’s in that foil packet lurking in the photos? Cloves of garlic.

The grilling is done.

Back inside we go to complete the process. You can use a molcajete if you like, or a food processor…we used the processor (never mind that bottle of wine in back 🙂 )

Cut up the tomatoes and jalapeno to put in the processor along with the garlic, and you can remove seeds from the jalapenos if you don’t want too much heat.

If you like cilantro that would be great to chop up and put in to the serving bowl before serving. I forgot to get the cilantro, but it’s just as good without. Don’t forget to add salt to taste.

Buen provecho!

  3. Delicious looking salsa. The jalapeno definitely will give a certain bite to it. Mmmm…
    Thanks for the visit. I was wondering if you ever got the chance to see the old performers in Aquarena. They will eventually take the other non-used parts of the old park except for the boats. I enjoyed my visit there with my son. It does have some history to it. Take care.

      Thanks. Hope you give the salsa a try. Really worth the little effort it takes. Nice and fresh.
      Yeah, as old as I am, Aquarena really goes back some years. I pretty much got to see everything there, we went several times. I liked the submarine show. That was something before it’s time.
