Variations on the one-two guacamole-salsa punch
Green pea guacamole: Ready-made guacamole and salsa are so easy to buy that you might wonder why you should prepare them yourself. We offer two good reasons. (TMS Photo)
Cook: 10 minutes
Prep: 15 minutes
5 large Roma tomatoes, halved
1 small red onion, thickly sliced
3 green onions
1/2 to 1 cup cilantro leaves
1 clove garlic
1 teaspoon each: canned chipotle peppers, apple cider vinegar, salt
1/4 cup chicken broth
1. Heat a grill to medium-high. Grill the tomatoes, red onion and green onions until partially charred, turning occasionally. Transfer to a plate. Grill the cilantro just to wilt and impart a slight smoky flavor, 30 seconds.
2. With the motor running, add the garlic clove to a food processor; process until finely chopped. Add the grilled vegetables and remaining ingredients; process until pureed. Serve with chips and guacamole, or as a condiment for grilled chicken or meat.
