I am an all American girl who married a wonderful Mexican man from Jalisco ,Mexico. I knew nothing about mexican cuisine but through trials and errors have come up with this amazing, simple , hot salsa. I took it to our huge Thanksgiving family gathering because my husband has to have salsa on everything! I only brought a small jar and everyone who tasted it were disappointed in one thing. I didn't bring enough! They absolutely loved it and it was the topic at the table for awhile. Everyone swapping their salsa stories. My uncle Larry couldn't stop raving about it. Hot and flavorful!!! Enjoy!

How To Make jalisco salsa

  • 1
    place your tomatoes and all your peppers on a heavy comal,or a broiling pan . cook under high broil til tomatoe are charred and cooked through out. Peppers should be charred all over but NOT burned.this step takes me about 20 minutes checking a couple times to turn for even doneness .You might have to pull some out sooner than others with long tongs.
