Roasted Jalapeno Salsa

Roasted Jalapeno Salsa

Serves: 4


  • 1 small jalapeno
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 white onion
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/4 cup lime juice (approx. 2 limes)
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 4-oz can mild diced green chilies


  1. Turn the broiler on high and position a rack near the top of the oven.
  2. Place the jalapeno on a bare baking sheet and cook for 5-10 minutes, flipping halfway, until the skin is blackened.
  3. Wrap loosely in foil to steam for a few minutes.
  4. Once jalapeno has cooled slightly, unwrap from foil and carefully peel off charred skin.  Slice in half and remove stems / seeds.
  5. Place the jalapeno, garlic, onion, avocado, lime juice, cilantro, salt and pepper, and diced green chilies into a food processor.
  6. Blend until well combined.
  7. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed (add more salt for flavor, lime for acidity, and garlic for zip).
