Dead Lizard Salsa


  • 5-8 Roma Tomato’s depending on size
  • 1 Large White Onion
  • 3-4 Cloves Garlic
  • 1 Jalapeño
  • 1 Serrano Chile
  • 6oz chicken broth
  • ½ Lime
  • Cilantro


In large skillet roast the tomatoes, garlic, peppers, and 2/3 of the onion. Save the rest of the onion for later. After everything is black and crusty it begins to fall apart. That means its getting close. Deglaze the pan with the chicken broth so all the crusty stuff loosens up from the pan. Now put all that into a blender except for the peppers. Cut those bad dogs in half, long ways and devain and seed all but one half of the Serrano. Thats where the heat comes from. Add to the blender and mix on a medium setting for a solid chug of beer (~15 seconds).
At this point we add that last 1/3 of the onion and some chopped cilantro. Also add about a half a squeezed lime and stir by hand. Chill and serve. No lizards were harmed in the making of this salsa
