Recipe Notes

The first time you make homemade salsa, I typically recommend adding the heat (jalapeño pepper) incrementally. I would recommend that for this Salsa de Molcajete as well, so if you want a milder version, you can consider starting with only 1/4 jalapeño.

I use the oven, but you can roast the tomatoes any way you see fit. I typically do not roast the other ingredients, but you can't really go wrong experimenting with that.
