Are you wondering how you can make a typical homemade salsa taste even better? Smoking the vegetables for salsa will help with that! I used some pecan wood pellets and couldn’t believe how much more flavor that added! 



  • 2 large beefsteak tomatoes 
  • ½ large onion 
  • 1 jalapeno 
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil 
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic 
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro 
  • Salt and Pepper


  1. Preheat smoker to 225 degrees.
  2. While the smoker is preheating, prep the vegetables. Slice the tomatoes and onions into quarters, then the jalapeno in half. 
  3. Place them on sheet pan or plate and drizzle olive oil over the top and season them with salt and pepper. 
  4. When the smoker is done preheating place the tomatoes, onions, and jalapenos on the grates. Smoke for 1 hr and 30 minutes. 
  5. Remove the vegetables carefully, and add them to a blender with the cilantro and garlic. Taste to see if the salsa is seasoned properly and add more salt and pepper if needed.
  6. Puree until smooth. 
  7. Serve with tortilla chips or top of nachos.
