This recipe demonstrates how roasting typical salsa ingredients--tomatoes, onions, jalapeño, and garlic--adds a smoky dimension. Some vegetables will char before others, so keep an eye on them when they're roasting, and remove as they are done; garlic is usually the first to char. Serve with baked tortilla chips, grilled fish, or chicken. -Recipe by Taji Marie
