  • 8-10 Roma Tomatoes

  • 1 white onion

  • 4 garlic cloves

  • Fresh cilantro

  • 2-3 large jalapenos

  • 3-5 colored sweet peppers (I used the small kind you can get at Aldi but you could also use bell peppers)

  • 1 Lime



  1. Heat your GMG Grill to 450*

  2. Cut tops off tomatoes and cut tomatoes in half. Cut onion into big chunks, half jalapenos and colored peppers, and peel garlic cloves.

  3. Place veggies on grill at 450* for 10-15 minutes to get a nice char on the veggies.

  4. Turn grill down to 275* and place veggies in a pan and cook for about an hour. Add a bunch of cilantro to the pan once you turn the grill down.

  5. Take veggies off and put into a food processor or blender.

  6. Add juice from lime, a healthy pinch of cilantro if you like it, pinch or two of crushed red pepper, and a pinch of salt to the food processor/blender.

  7. Blend to your likeness for desired thickness.

  8. Serve and enjoy!
