Spicy, smoky, fire roasted salsa made with simple ingredients. Perfect for entertaining at home or even as a topping for meals!
Are you a chunky salsa type of person? Do you like spicy restaurant-style salsas? If yes and yes, you’ll definitely love this fire roasted salsa!
Salsa is one of those timeless recipes you can enjoy at any time of year. I especially love serving it when I have friends over my house. Chips and salsa are always on my menu for get togethers. Along with olive bruschetta and guacamole, of course. This salsa is made with simple ingredients. Nothing fancy here. You just dump everything in a food processor and pulse until it’s all blended.
How to Make Homemade Fire Roasted Salsa
I use this can of fire roasted tomatoes (not sponsored) and cherry tomatoes because I love keeping things simple. The onions, garlic, and cilantro are key. And the juice from the limes will help balance it all (it’s spicy, trust me). Smoked paprika, cayenne, and cumin bring out that smoky heat which put the cherry (tomato) on top of the perfect salsa.
The result? A spicy, smoky, chunky, flavorful salsa.
You can even skip the chips and add this salsa on top of tacos or whatever you’re eating that day. Heck the other day, I topped my fried eggs with it! All I’m saying is that you totally need to make some ASAP.
