Roasted Jalapeño Salsa

Rumor has it that spicy food speeds up your metabolism. That's a cool bonus. Either way, I love it.

Roasted jalapeño salsa


This is my favorite salsa recipe. Traditionally, the ingredients in this salsa are roasted over the flame on a gas range in heavy duty foil. It takes forever, and the foil often breaks due to the acidity of the ingredients. I prefer broiling it all at once.
