This is a delicious way of making salsa. Roasted corn is blended with other veggies to make a quick salsa as a game day snack.

Tailgating parties are a tradition here in Florida and the rest of the Country. I don’t know how the rest of the country does tailgating parties, but in Florida we tend to go ALL out for each tailgate party.

Most of the tailgaters will show up with painted faces, hair and hands. The painted chest is also very common and everyone is happy to wear the love of their team on their sleeve, quite literally.

A tailgating party without food is a like a birthday party without cake! I am happy to say that I haven’t attended a single tailgating party that didn’t have food and alcohol flowing freely.

My favorite foods to eat at tailgating parties are finger foods. They are easy to consume and always very delicious.

Nothing says Tailgating like salsa. There are so many varieties of salsa that sometimes it is hard to choose. Having salsa in mini and ready-to-eat cups makes it very convenient. The cups turned out better than having chips for the salsa.

I have made tomato salsas in the past for tailgating parties and they always go over very well.  My 5 tomato salsa is the most requested salsa recipe for any tailgating parties I attend.  Tomatoes, in all forms, are perfect for salsa.

Being a tomato aficionado, I can tell when a tomato is packed. The red California tomatoes are some of the best tomatoes in the world. They are juicy, ripe and plump.

I am making myself hungry just thinking about them…

What is your favorite kind of Hunt’s tomatoes?

4) Cut out about a 4” by 4” pieces of foil and place the garlic mixture in it. I like to leave the oil in the bowl. Fold all sides and turn it into a pouch. Set it aside. Also set aside the bowl with any left over oil.

9) I like to put the onions mixture in a casserole dish and roast them. I find it roasts better that way, but you can choose a baking dish. Transfer the onion mixture to the dish and place it in the oven. I like to put the onions only and leave the oil in the bowl. Place the dish and the garlic pouch in the bottom level

10) Remove the husks from the corn. For this recipe, I used a whole ear of corn. Take the left over oil from the garlic and put it into the bowl that had onions. Baste the corn and half a red bell pepper. There should be enough oil left over to baste both veggies.

11) I roasted them in the oven because I don’t own a grill. If you have a grill, use that instead. You can roast all the veggies in this recipe. I like to roast them separately because it’s easier to cut them when we assemble the salsa.

12) Remove the onions after they have charred around the edges. Remove the garlic too. Let them cool for a few minutes and then roughly chop the onions and the garlic. Put them in the mixing bowl.

13) Once you have removed the onions and garlic, turn the oven to broil and broil corn and peppers. Turn the corn until it is brown on all sides. Remove them from the oven and cool for a few minutes.

14) While the corn and pepper are cooling, cut pastry sheets into 3” by 3” squares. You will need about 60 of these squares.

15) Using PAM cooking spray, I sprayed the mini muffin trays and placed about 3 per slot. I did a bad job of molding them to the shape of the muffin hole. I like them rough and non-symmetrical. Also spray a small amount of PAM cooking spray inside the cup shapes. I made about 20 and still had some roasted salsa left over. Toast for about 5-7 minutes or until the cups are brown.

16) Remove the skin from the pepper and chop them up roughly. Put them in the mixing bowl.

  1. This is one of my favorite types of salsas! Love the idea for creative “chips!” I don’t think I have ever made the same kind of salsa twice – love how you can have so many variations of one thing. Always interesting!!

  2. Woaaah! What detailed instructions that are, I like! Plus, it’s awesome to know that your salsa is such a hit at parties and get-togethers. Will definitely come around, next time I need a salsa recipe!! 😀

    1. Thank you, Howie. You have an open invitation to show up at any of my parties or get-togethers. 🙂

  3. This is perfect tailgate food! My husband and I will be tailgating in style this weekend at the Alabama/Ole Miss game. As you probably know, a cute sundress is the attire of choice for the ladies at those southern games. I’ll have to whip some of these gorgeous cups up at my son’s apartment before the game! 🙂

    1. Thank you, Linda. How much fun is it to tailgate an Ole Miss game! Although, I have to say “Roll tide”. Sorry! The cute sundress attire sounds like so much fun. Send me pics of the party and the salsa. Thank you.
