Recipe Notes

*Roasted garlic: use a medium to large head of garlic.  Slice the garlic in half horizontally along the thickest part of the head of garlic.  Drizzle with oil (any type will do) and sprinkle with salt.  Wrap the head of garlic in aluminum foil and bake in the oven at 400 degrees for 30-40 minutes.  The time depends on how big the head of garlic is.  My clue that it is almost done is the smell becomes strong in the kitchen.  When I smell it, I usually just turn off the oven and leave the foil packet in the oven until I'm ready to use it.   When I'm ready to use it, I unwrap the head of garlic, and separate the halves.  From there, it is easy to squish the garlic paste from each side.  If necessary you can use a knife to help. Be careful not to get the skins, they can be tough and chewy.

If you don't like cilantro or hot sauce, leave it out.

Other additions I like to add when I have them around are finely chopped red onion and a little fresh jalapeno.

Choose your favorite salsa for this recipe.  I like to use a chunkier variety to add to the texture.

If you don't have time to roast the garlic, just add 1 fresh chopped clove to add some flavor.
