Roasted Salsa Roja Canning Recipe

I love this salsa recipe! This is the second year of making roasted salsa. The roasting of the tomatoes gives a deep smoky flavor all throughout. This is salsa recipe is one where you can customize it by how spicy you like it.  I tend to do a medium heat, my husband prefers hotter.  If you are canning this recipe, please use less fresh herbs and garlic as it will turn bitter the longer it sets.

Salsa Roja Canning Recipe


  • 16 full size tomatoes
  • 10-15 peppers, We used a mix of Serrano, Jalopeno, Redhots, sweet red, yellow, and orange
  • 5 cloves of garlic
  • 1-2 Tbsp salt
  • 1-2 bunches cilantro
  • 2-3 Tablespoons Agave Nectar


  • Halve the tomatoes and onions and lay cut-side up on a grill
  • Roast till the onions look nice and translucent, tomatoes look soft, and peppers are getting a nice char on them
  • Let it all cool a bit, then run through the food processor with salt and cilantro
  • Stir it all together.
  • If you made a smaller batch you can just eat it or you if you made a large batch, follow canning instructions.
