You got to have excellent salsa if you are going to have an amazing taco night.. this is a yummy roasted salsa to enjoy either with tortilla chips or over your delicious tacos.. I have used similar spices in this sauce as the meat- ground coriander and ancho chili powder…
- 2 cups cherry tomatoes
- Drizzle of olive oil
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Transfer the tomatoes to a lined cookie sheet. Add the olive oil and salt, mix well and roast for 30 minutes. Take out and put through a food mill. Keep aside. If you don’t have a food mill, process the tomatoes in a food processor.
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, chopped
- 1 teaspoon ground coriander
- 2 teaspoons ancho chili powder
- 1 to 2 teaspoons salt
- ½ cup cilantro, chopped
- Juice of half a lemon
Heat a frying pan with the olive oil. Add the onion and garlic and sauté on medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes. Add the coriander, ancho chili powder and salt. Saute for another 2 to 3 minutes and add to the tomato sauce. Add lemon juice and cilantro. Check for seasonings and let cool. Serve with tacos.
