Homemade roasted tomato blender salsa

 A bit spicy, a bit sweet- just one right balanced homemade roasted tomato salsa recipe!

a plate full of corn chips and bowl of salsa

Beautiful salsa dip for your corn or pita chips, easy to make and oh so easy to eat.

Try it with friends when watching favorite sport! I would say you need to multiple the amount of salsa to please a big crowd. For a small family midday snack the amount is just fine.

I prefer to make salsa in my Vitamix blender, but just about any blender will work!

If you prefer a chunky style salsa, pulse it a few times and that’s it, no need to blend.
