Roasted carrot salsa may sound a bit strange, but I can assure you it is a delicious and nutritious alternative to a traditional Mexican salsa recipe. It can even be easier on your digestive system if you have acid reflux or other digestive issues! I recommend eating this salsa with chips, but it is great on any Mexican style food or for adding a bit of heat to any dish.

I would advise using a food processor instead of a blender so that your salsa comes out chunky. Using a blender may cause the salsa to turn out wrong. If a blender is all you have, try to blend everything lightly.


  • Carrots (Five whole carrots), Chopped
  • Roma Tomato (Five), 3 quartered, two diced
  • Garlic (Four Cloves), Minced
  • Vegetable oil Bottle
  • Pork Rub (Three tablespoons)
  • Jalapeño Peppers (Two, large), Diced
  • Red Bell Pepper (One), Diced
  • Salt, Black Pepper To taste
  • Cilantro To taste, Chopped, as a garnish
  • Lime Juice 2 Tablespoons


  1. Once all ingredients are gathered and cut, heat about 2 cups of vegetable oil in a deep skillet. Add quartered and diced tomatoes, garlic, jalapeño, and red bell pepper to hot oil. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of pork rub over all ingredients. Fry until jalapeños and tomatoes start to turn mushy, turn heat to low and continue cooking gently for an additional ten minutes.
  2. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Prepare an oiled pan for chopped carrots and season lightly with salt and pepper. Drizzle vegetable oil over carrots lightly. Cook carrots just until they start to blacken, about 45 minutes.
  3. Once all previous ingredients are cooked, place about 3/4ths of your roasted carrots in a blender or food processor, followed by the quartered tomatoes. Leave your diced tomato to the side for later. Add garlic and all of your peppers to blender/ food processor.
  4. Blend until ingredients are well incorporated. Add your leftover used oil from your skillet from Step One. Continue to blend until mixed well.
  5. Pour your salsa mix into a large container or mixing bowl. Add all leftover diced ingredients (the rest of your carrots and tomatoes.) Sprinkle remaining tablespoon of Pork rub into your salsa, add lime juice, and mix everything together!
  6. Add salt and pepper to taste. Now you're ready to portion your salsa into mason jars, and allow to cool to room temperature before storage in the refrigerator. You're done!
  7. When serving, add chopped cilantro to the top of your salsa as a garnish. For beauty!
The final product!
The final product!

How to Can Your Salsa

For long term storage of your salsa, I highly recommend pressure sealing your jars once they are full. To do this, fill a pot with water and bring it to a low boil. Set your "sterilized" filled jars with the lids facing upwards in the boiling water for about five minutes, or until the tabs snap down. You should hear a light "click" once they are sealed, and your salsa will last much longer in the refrigerator.
