“Green Tabasco Salsa”
Green Tabasco serves to give this homemade salsa recipe just the kick it needs. Capt’n Salsa always get a little tickled whenever someone comments about roasting all the ingredients for their homemade salsa.
Sure it is an extra step in the process and does demand a few more minutes of your time but I can guarantee you excellent results and your salsa will be delicious.
Do you still have your gas grill sitting on the back patio or deck?
Simply throw all the “roastable” ingredients, tomatoes, onion, green onions, chiles and tomatillos on the grill. Yes of course after you wash them and be sure to remove the papery skins from the tomatillos. Place them over medium heat turning every couple of minutes till you get a nice “browning” of the skin, yep a little charring is nice too.
If your tomatoes and tomatillos start to “split” and spill their juice go ahead and remove them from the grill.
Toss the roasted chiles into a plastic freezer bag and seal, allowing them to steam for a few minutes. The skin will be easy to remove.
