  • 7 medium plum tomatoes
  • 1 medium white onion
  • 2 serrano chiles
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons water


  • Rinse the vegetables before grilling.
  • Place the vegetables on a hot grill for about 15 minutes.
  • Place all of the ingredients in your blender jar with 3 tablespoons of water and then blend for 30 seconds.
  • Taste and adjust the salt.


  • Use fewer plum tomatoes if your tomatoes are really large.
  • Substitute green tomatoes for a change of pace.
  • Use only 1 serrano chile if you prefer a milder salsa. They flavor will still be bold.
  • Keeps in the refrigerator for 3 days although it's unlikely that it will last that long.
