Grilled Bloody Mary Salsa

Grilling the tomatoes gives the salsa smoky char flavors, boosted by the deep, fermented flavor of the Worcestershire sauce. And like any respectable Bloody Mary, both are mixed with lemon, black pepper, and an excellent source of spice: fresh chile de arbol for a dash of Mexican authenticity. More

Roasted Tomato Salsa

Roasting a set of standard salsa ingredients first may add some time to an otherwise quick process, but it's all for good as the end result retains a freshness while gaining a tomato intensity, some sweetness, and a more mild heat the melds seamlessly throughout. More

Dinner Tonight: Baked Chicken with Roasted Tomatillo Cream Sauce

Tomatillo salsa is also an excellent base for starting a dish with those smokey, spicy flavors, like this one from Rick Bayless's Salsas that Cook. If you have the salsa made already, it's almost no work: stir together with cream, pour it over chicken, and bake until the chicken is just cooked through. Making the salsa takes all of ten minutes, though—so either way, it's quick, simple, and satisfying cooking. More

Grilling: Roasted Corn Relish

I loved how this all came together. The first taste was of sweet and tangy corn, but the sweetness slowly fades, giving way to the heat from the jalapeno and an earthiness from the chili powder and cumin. The "relish" can double as a dip for tortilla chips, salad topping, or taco condiment—it'll add excellent flavor to whatever it touches. More

What's Your Secret Salsa Ingredient?

A few months ago, I came across a tomato-based salsa at a Mexican restaurant that I couldn't stop dipping the tortilla chips in. It had all the major salsa players: tomatoes, onions and chiles. But there was something a little different about this salsa, a spice or herb that I couldn't quite put my finger on. It added a touch of earthiness, maybe even smokiness? What could it be? More

Taste Test: Best Salsa

With Super Bowl ahead (and Cinco de Mayo and all the Taco Tuesdays), we were curious about store-bought salsas. So we tried 17 different brands and opened two bags of tortilla chips (edible spoons!). All of the the salsas were of "medium" heat level and tomato-based. Find out our five favorites here. More

Grilling: Pineapple Salsa

Even though I begrudgingly label this "a salsa," I can't deny the deliciousness that pineapples, peppers, onions, cilantro, and lime create when brought together and enjoyed with tortilla chips. I have come out of the fruit-salsa closet. More
