Today we visted Baja Express, and I think I am in LOVE! Does anyone have a copycat recipe for Salsa Baja? It is a thin brown salsa (not at all hot) that has fresh tomato, onion, and cilantro. It almost tastes like it has coffee in it, but the waitress said it is just roasted tomatoes. Don't know what it is, but it is YUMMY!
the toasted flavor is from roasted tomatoes and
chilies to do this;
poke a few times with fork
place on a open gas flame and keep moving veggie
( i do this with bare hands a large fork is ok)
then peel the skin off it turns black
and don't worry some of the black skin gets into
salsa only more flavor
this is same thing Chevy's does...I think
then make your salsa like normal
my mom used long green chili they are the flavor
not HOT, my mom never puts jalapenos in our salsa
she does add some tiny bright green SERRANOS which are deadly HOT use gloves to handle those
(TRUST ME) she diced those up teeny-tiny and
her salsa was and is the BEST...
Mexicans from CA tend to use carrots and jalapenos in a vinegar pickling base and put those on tables..
(at least we did)
let me know if this works for you my girlfriend used
to roast her veggies in micro placing them in a brown bag and nuking them till the skin peels off.
I'm not sure what the recipe is but I would really like to know it. I absolutely LOVE the salsa and a baja fresh is like 300mi away from where I live because they took all of the ones out of Indiana - stupid people.
