Since moving out of the city, and thus far away from any Baja Fresh, I needed a good fill in for Salsa Baja. I found it! This recipe is easy and fun to make, and using as much home grown produce makes it all the better. I followed this recipe exactly and I am very happy with the results. It's the salsa that I love from Baja Fresh, right in my own kitchen.

I would say this recipe was dead on! Just make sure you follow directions and turn up the heat on the tomatoes & jalapenos, more burnt the better :)

the recipe was awesome, have been searching for a long time for this recipe, thanks, recommendation though, cut back on the water, and instead of using the grill and making a mess, use a propane torch for plumbing, and turn the tomatoes for the blackened effect.

This recipe is very close to Baja's. Make sure you really blacken the tomatoes. Also, I threw 2 green onions on the grill for the last 5 minutes and got them a little blackened/wilted and added that in the blender too. Baja used to enclose one of these onions wrapped up with your burrito (and a slice of lime) before they got bought out and I think they may have thrown some in to the salsa because it took it that much closer to the original. Also, the salsa gets better after it has thouroughly chilled. It's impossible to wait until the next day, but that's when it was the best.

This recipe is it!!! I have been trying to get this recipe for over seven years and have tried numerous others with to no avail. We made this last week for my son's birthday party. I ran over to the local Mexican market and bought some "hard" Roma tomatoes for this since produce is so high in the Winter. I ran home and burned the tomatoes on their sides for 20 minutes each. Followed the recipe to a tee, and voila. Everyone raved about it! So simple to make, and I'll never have to eat at Baja Fresh since I have this killer recipe! Only suggestion that I might make is cut the water down by one cup for extra thick salsa. Outstanding!!

I live in Las Vegas and have been wanting the recipe for this salsa for years. This is right on. I did make two batches, if you use a riper tomato the salsa has more of a tomato taste than the restaurant. I like the less ripe tomatoes. THANK YOU!
