Salsa Baja

Baja Fresh Mex Copycat Recipe

7 medium chilled tomatoes (not too ripe, should be firm)
1 small jalapeno pepper
1 clove garlic
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups water
2 tablespoons white onions, diced
2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped

Preheat barbecue grill to high heat. Remove tomato stems; place 6 tomatoes directly on heated grill stem side down. Roast for 20 to 30 minutes, or until grilled side is charred. Turn tomatoes over, throw stem removed jalapeno pepper on grill with tomatoes; grill another 20 to 30 minutes, until both tomatoes and the jalapeno are blackened. Turn pepper to blacken all surfaces. Remove tomatoes and jalapeno from grill; place in a bowl and allow to cool for 10-15 minutes.

Once cooled, place tomatoes and jalapeno into a blender. Add garlic and salt; puree on high speed.
Add water; blend for another minute until sauce darkens a bit. Pour puree into a bowl. Dice remaining tomato; add to pureed salsa. Stir in onion and cilantro; chill before serving.
