Fire-Roasted Salsa is a restaurant-style salsa that only takes minutes to make in the blender and really packs in the flavor.

Since Cinco De Mayo is right around the corner, my mind has been on Margaritas, tacos, guacamole, and Tres Leches Cake.

After doing inventory, I realized there is no salsa recipe on Spicy Southern Kitchen. Had to fix that!

My favorite salsa to make at home is this Fire-Roasted Salsa using canned fire-roasted tomatoes. They give salsa a wonderful smoky flavor.

This salsa is like the one you would get at a Mexican restaurant, but it has so much more flavor. It’s really thick and not watered down at all.

I add plenty of garlic, onion, green chilies, cilantro, and a jalapeno for heat. Plus some lime juice and cumin. A teaspoon of sugar helps tone down the acidity of the tomatoes.

Fire-Roasted Salsa is best made at least a few hours before serving so the flavors have a chance to blend.

  1. Ever since making salsa myself I just can’t eat the store-bought stuff anymore. It’s just not the same.
