There is nothing better than a fresh bowl salsa with chips and this fire roasted salsa recipe is SO delicious!

fire roasted salsa - perfect for game day - with chips in a bowl, football, and jersey

Our fridge always has a jar of homemade salsa in it. Sometimes it is regular salsa, occasionally fruit salsa, and then sometimes, this fire roasted salsa. The key is to get a can of fire roasted tomatoes, but you could definitely roast your own tomatoes if you have a plethora of tomatoes in your garden! Then, get 1-2 of your favorite pepper, roast it, and blend it all together with some spices! Serve with your favorite tortilla chips OR on top of enchiladas, tacos, or rice, and you will have a happy family!

Hubby and the boys and I can clear out some chips and salsa in no time, especially if our favorite team is playing on tv!

This delicious, homemade fire roasted salsa is the perfect game day salsa or Taco Tuesday condiment!


  • 1 large can (about 28 oz) crushed fire roasted tomatoes
  • 2 medium jalapeños
  • olive oil
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 TBSP lime juice


    1. To roast peppers: preheat oven on to 450°F.
    2. Rinse peppers in water and cut off the tops.
    3. Place peppers on a small baking sheet or oven safe dish.
    4. Drizzle a little olive oil on top of the peppers.
    5. Place peppers in the oven and check every 5-10 minutes, but will probably take closer to 20, depending on the size of your peppers.
    6. After skin has browned and has a few charred spots, they’re done.
    7. Remove them from the oven and set aside to cool.
    8. Directions for making salsa: Place roasted tomatoes, roasted peppers, garlic, salt, onion powder, cumin, and lime juice in the blender or food processor.
    9. Depending on how you like it, you could blend it a lot or if you like it really chunky, just a little. We usually blend it for about 15-20 seconds.
    10. Pour in a pot on the stove and bring to a boil, and then let cool. The boiling helps the salsa to keep longer in the fridge without spoiling, but trust me, this will go so fast, you probably can skip this step.
    11. Serve up with your favorite chips or Mexican food and enjoy in front of the big game!


Roasting peppers takes out some of the heat. If you prefer raw peppers or don't have time to roast them, definitely only use 1 pepper.
