Grilling the vegetables infuses the salsa with a deep smoky flavor.


Preheat grill to medium-high. Brush grill grate with oil.

Grill tomatoes, onion, garlic packet, and jalapeño until vegetables are soft, about 5 minutes. Remove vegetables from grill; let sit until cool enough to handle, 23 minutes.

Peel tomatoes, garlic, and jalapeño (the skins should slide off easily). Place peeled vegetables in a food processor with grilled onion, cilantro, lime juice, and salt. Pulse salsa until blended but still chunky.
