Grilled Tomato, Corn & Poblano Salsa
Author: 
 
Ingredients
  • 3 large or 4 medium tomatoes, cut in half
  • 2 ears corn, un-shucked
  • 1 large or 2 medium poblano peppers
  • 1 onion, cut in quarters lengthwise through root (keep root intact to hold onion together)
  • 2 large cloves garlic
  • ½ bunch of cilantro, coarsely chopped
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • Salt to taste
Instructions
  1. Heat grill & oil grates. Brush tomatoes & onions with oil. Place all vegetables directly on grill grates.
  2. Carefully turn each when starting to brown (the tomatoes, onions, & garlic will be quick) & remove into a bowl.
  3. Gently squeeze the tomatoes to remove some juice & seeds (or the salsa might be too runny).
  4. When the skin has blistered all over & blackened a bit remove to a bowl & cover to let steam.
  5. After 10 minutes, remove skin under running water (doesn’t hurt to wear gloves – they can burn your hands a bit when they’re spicy!) & pull out stem & seeds.
  6. When corn husks are blackened a bit, remove from grill & cool a bit before shucking & cutting the kernels off.
  7. Cut the root ends off the grilled onions & place in food processor with grilled tomatoes, garlic, prepared poblanos, cilantro, lime juice, & salt & pulse into chunky or smooth salsa, your choice.
  8. Stir in corn kernels, adjust seasoning as necessary, & serve. Freezes well.
