Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
4 to 6 plum tomatoes, cored and halved (1 1/4 pounds)
1 large jalapeno, stem removed
1 large onion, peeled and cut into 8 equal pieces
2 cloves garlic, unpeeled
3/4 tsp. salt
2 T. chopped cilantro
2 T. fresh lime juice
1 tsp. Sherry vinegar
3 T. water

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat the broiler to 500 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the tomatoes and jalapeno pepper along 1 end of the baking sheet. Place the onion and garlic along the other side of the baking sheet and broil close to the heat source until the onions and garlic are blistered and beginning to char, about 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and, using tongs, transfer the onions and garlic to a small bowl to cool. Return the tomatoes and pepper to the oven and continue to broil until the tomatoes are charred around the edges, and very soft and bubbly, about 10 more minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool. You can leave the skins on but if you are going to remove them, put the tomatoes and chilies in a plastic bag to cool and the skins will come right off. When cooled, slip the garlic cloves out of their skins and transfer to the bowl of a food processor along with the onions, tomatoes, jalapeno pepper, and any accumulated juices from the baking sheet. Process in short pulses until salsa is thoroughly combined but still slightly chunky. Add salt, cilantro, and lime juice, Sherry vinegar and water and stir to combine.

Personal Notes:
This is a great mild salsa with a great smoky taste. To make it even milder, use green chilies instead of Jalapeno peppers.
