Roasted Jalapeno and Lime Salsa

As a salsa-snob on a budget I could easily go broke if I didn't ration my salsa intake since I only like buying the fresh fancy stuff. So using a classic student solution, I made it myself...with great success. This will be a repeat recipe for sure!


5 tomatoes
1 fresh jalapeno
1/3 cup diced red onion
2 cloves of garlic
1tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp tomato paste
Juice from 1 lime
salt and pepper

1. Dice tomatoes, garlic, jalapenos and onion and spread on pan. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt.

2. Roast at 400C for about 20-30min.

3. Stir in tomato paste, lime juice, cumin, cayenne and s&p. Taste-test, season until you're happy.

* Next time I would add lime zest for a stronger flavour.
