Roasted Salsa 3 Ways

By starting with a base of green salsa, you can change the flavor by adding just a few more ingredients. We’ve suggested a few different combinations, but let your imagination run wild and see what you can come up with!


Grilling or roasting actually sweetens the flavor of vegetables (or meat for that matter). The browning effect (also called the Maillard reaction) occus when the sugars in the proteins and carbohyrdates are heated above 300°F. Aside from turning foods brown and golden, the other changes that occur at the molecular level result in hundreds of flavor and aroma compounds being created. RoastedSalsa2

Dice up everything into the same size pieces, so the salsa is uniform in consistency. To save time use bottled green salsa. RoastedSalsa3
