"This is a traditional Mexican sauce that works great over meats, fish, beans, rice, tacos, and quesadillas. Roasting the ingredients might seem like a bother, but it doesn't take more than 15 minutes and it's worth every single second." — Tequila Pro!

onion, cut into 4 wedges
roma (plum) tomatoes
sea salt to taste
Whoa that's some heat! It was hard to add salt to taste because it was spicy. I made this for my husband; I'm the wuss! I had to alter the serving size in half because it makes enough. I think it needed lime and a bit more garlic.
Very delicious and just the right amount of spice! Will definitely keep this recipe for the books.
This is a bit like salsa to me. My family loved it - we are making it for the third time today! Definitely it is worth the time spent roasting the veggies as Tequila Pro says. I didn't use the aluminum foil (that didn't work for me), I just used my large cast iron skillet to roast the veggies on my gas stove. One thing that I wasn't sure about at first was whether to cut the veggies first -- the recipe doesn't say to do it -- I didn't and it worked perfectly. Yum, yum!
