How to Make Air Fryer Roasted Salsa

This is a simple homemade roasted salsa recipe. To make this recipe you will need to do the following:

  1. First you will need to prepare a few of the vegetables. Remove the seeds and ribs from the jalapeno and slice it in halves. (If you would like a more spicy salsa, you can leave some or all of the seeds in the jalapeno). Peel and slice the onion, you will only need 1/4 for this recipe.
  2. Leave the skin on the garlic cloves, this will help them from burning when roasting.
  1. Drizzle Olive Oil over the vegetables and place in the basket of an air fryer.
  2. Turn the air fryer to 400ºF and roast the vegetables for 15-20 minutes.
  3. When the vegetables are beautifully roasted, transfer to a blender or food processor. Add salt, sugar and cilantro and blend until smooth, or desired consistency. If you don’t have a blender, you can mash with a potato masher or slice everything with a knife.
  4. Serve warm or cold with tortilla chips.

    1. I’m so happy you like this recipe! This recipe can be easily frozen to use later. Make sure it air tight and I would thaw in the refrigerator the day before you want to use it.
