Elizabeth's Salsa

40 mins (prep 20, cooking 20)
10 ingredients
3 servings
This is pretty similar to the salsa served at Chevy's Fresh Mex restaurants- it has a great smoky flavor. I forget where I got the basic recipe, but I have tweaked it over the years to our tastes. I make it by the gallon and can it in the summer when the ingredients are the freshest, and sell some to various folks in our church and neighborhood- although those closest to us get it in quart jars as a gift at christmas! It helps to bring the pepper and tomatoes to room temperature before coating them with the olive oil, so they don't sweat as much. If your cloves of garlic are large, use just 1 clove, unless you like a LOT of garlic flavor!
