Roasted Tomato Salsa

Back on January 18, I talked about making simple ground beef tacos, but pairing it with fresh made accompaniments. The three that I mentioned were guacamole, roasted salsa, and green chile queso. Tonight, we are having tacos again. This time I am sharing my recipe for simple roasted tomato salsa. Unfortunately, my grill is still buried under about a foot and a half of snow from last Sunday. This salsa is the best when the ingredients are roasted on your grill, but a broiler will work too.  So give it a try! By the way, margaritas are always a good companion to tacos too.
