  • 1 whole(s) orange bell pepper (medium)
  • 6 whole(s) tomatoes (medium roma)
  • 4 whole(s) jalapeno peppers (large)
  • 4 clove(s) garlic
  • 1/4 whole(s) white onion
  • 1/2 tablespoon(s) light olive oil


Tomatoes, Jalepenos, Bell Pepper, Garlic

Onions, Cilantro

Remove the skin, ends (and stems) from the tomatoes, jalapenos, and the bell pepper.

Remove and discard all seeds from the jalapenos.

Slice the tomatoes, jalapenos, and bell pepper.

Increase burner to med-high (6-7)

add all ingredients into the pan and place on burner.

Once the juice is simmering, increase to high to get the sugars in the peppers to become slightly sticky. (really just a minute or two).

Remove from heat, put in blender and pulse chop until thick and mostly smooth.

Let cool and serve or refrigerate.
