Roasted bell peppers, onions, jalapenos, garlic and tomatoes take a spin in the blender to create this amazingly Easy Roasted Vegetable Salsa.
Happy Seis de Mayo! Yes, there really isn’t such a thing, but I’m continuing our family fiesta from yesterday. I wouldn’t dream of not sharing this amazingly Easy Roasted Vegetable Salsa recipe until next year. It was the perfect topping to my Slow Cooker Brown Rice and Lentil Tacos.
And the mountain of tortilla chips I dipped in it throughout the evening…
Sitting together as a family to eat dinner each evening is very important in our house. This is the time that I learn all kinds of stories from the girls’ days at school, where we chat about our plans for the upcoming weekend, where for a half an hour, we’re all together in one spot. One of our favorite family dinners is taco night. I mean, who doesn’t love tacos?
Tacos are an easy meal that both children and adults love. They’re easy to make your own as you can choose whatever toppings you’d like. When you have young children, the Old El Paso Stand ‘n Stuff Shells that I typically purchase are a big help so that the girls can create their own tacos. Although, if I’m not looking, this one will take the opportunity to nix the lettuce and instead, fill her taco shell with cheese.
A must-have for taco night is salsa. How can you eat a taco without a spoonful of salsa on top? Sure, it’s messy, but that’s half the fun! Our family loves the fresh salsa that you find in the refrigerated section of the store but if you take a peek at your grocery bill, the cost of buying fresh over jarred adds up quickly! So last night I took it upon myself to make my own fresh salsa and came up with an incredibly easy recipe using a Ninja blender I had picked up at Walmart on an earlier shopping trip.
Now that warmer weather is upon us – well, in theory anyway – it just makes sense to put all of the fresh vegetables available to use! This salsa is chock full of bell peppers, onions, garlic and tomatoes. You simply cut them into large chunks, roast at a high temperature for half and hour and then blend. Done! You have over six cups of fresh salsa at the ready for your next family taco night fiesta. You may think that sounds like a lot of salsa, but believe me, it disappears fast!
This roasted vegetable salsa works for you in that you can make it right before serving or prepare earlier in the day and refrigerate until you’re ready to eat. I love doing the latter as it allows all of the flavors to meld together. Either way, you’ll end up the perfect topping for your next taco night.
