Homemade Spicy Salsa Roja Recipe


  • 5 medium ripe tomatoes
  • 2-3 dried árbol chilies (adjust based on your heat preference)
  • 1-2 jalapeño peppers (for added heat and a fresh kick)
  • 1 large red onion, quartered
  • 3 garlic cloves, unpeeled
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 teaspoon salt (adjust to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar (for a slight tang)


Roast the Ingredients:

  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Arrange the tomatoes, árbol chilies, jalapeños, onion quarters, and garlic cloves on a baking sheet. Roast in the oven for about 15-20 minutes or until the tomatoes and peppers are charred and the onions are soft.


  1. Peel the garlic once it’s cool enough to handle. Remove the stems (and seeds if you prefer less heat) from the chilies and jalapeños.
  2. In a blender, combine the roasted vegetables (tomatoes, chilies, jalapeños, and onion), peeled garlic, lime juice, cilantro, salt, cumin, and apple cider vinegar. Blend until the mixture reaches your desired consistency, either smooth or slightly chunky.

Adjust and Chill:

  1. Taste and adjust the seasoning, adding more salt or lime juice if needed. If the salsa is too thick, you can add a little water to reach the desired consistency.
  2. Refrigerate the salsa for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.

Serving Suggestions:

  • Dipping: Serve your Spicy Salsa Roja with a bowl of crispy tortilla chips.
  • Tacos and Burritos: Use it as a vibrant and spicy topping for tacos, burritos, or fajitas.
  • Grilled Meats: It makes an excellent accompaniment to grilled chicken, beef, or fish.

Tips for the Perfect Salsa Roja:

  • Roasting the ingredients deepens the flavors, adding a smoky richness to the salsa.
  • Adjust the heat by playing with the number of árbol chilies and jalapeños. Start with less and add more as needed.
  • Storage: This salsa can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Enjoy the bold and spicy flavors of this homemade Salsa Roja, inspired by Archer Farms, with your favorite dishes or as a snack with chips. It’s a surefire way to add some excitement to your meals!
