Another hot salsa take coming at you! You know I love my dips and spreads and salsas. I honestly don't think I make a meal without having some sort of concocted sauce or dressing involved. I have been using the canned hatch chiles in chili and soups for years and finally was lucky enough this year to get my hands on a shipment of hatch chiles from New Mexico directly. I could not have been more thrilled to try out all of the things possible with these chiles.

I loved this salsa so so so much. The roasting brought out so many unique flavors from the peppers and garlic and made the flavors just so rich and deep. I honestly ate this with a spoon at one point I couldn't believe how good it tasted. To be fair, I also used fresh garden tomatoes which REALLY does make a difference in tomato recipes. See if you can still get your hands on some heirloom tomatoes at the grocery store for this one. Honestly the fresh tomatoes is probably more important in this recipe than the fresh hatch because those canned hatch chiles are really wonderful.

Try this out and see what you think!
