Nana’s Spicy Roasted Salsa

Nana’s Spicy Roasted Salsa is the best authentic roasted salsa that you will ever taste. Not only is the salsa amazing, but it is super easy to make! Nana Huerta, my husband’s grandmother taught me this recipe when she came to visit us. So, I’ve been making it ever since.

This salsa will only take you 2o minutes to make.That is it!! You can be done making this salsa faster than having to go to the store and purchase it. Not only that, but there’s no hidden chemicals or preservatives in it. Everything is fresh, authentic and straight up delicious.  Just for the record, if you do not like spicy salsa then just don’t add any hot peppers. Plain and simple my friend. 🙂 But, I must admit in my own eyes salsa taste so darn good when it has just a little bit of heat! 🙂

Truth is, I had been trying to make some good salsa, but every recipe I tried just wasn’t well balanced or flavorful. There are several different ways to make salsa, but this is by far my favorite way to create salsa.

Gather your ingredients it’s salsa! 🙂
