GONZO Garlic Salsa

  1. Preheat the oven or a toaster oven to 400F degrees.

  2. Place the whole head of garlic (the top 1/4 inch cut off) in a piece of tinfoil that is large enough to wrap and cover the garlic. Drizzle the Roasted Garlic Oil the garlic and wrap the foil around the garlic to secure a nice pouch. Roast the garlic in the preheated oven for 30-40 minutes until soft and fragrant.

  3. When the garlic is cooled enough to handle, squeeze the garlic cloves out of the paper.

  4. Put the diced tomatoes, Rotel, onion, carrot, jalapeño and all the roasted garlic into the base of a food processor. Pulse a few times times until the the salsa is blended but still chunky. Add the honey, salt, pepper, cilantro and lime juice. Pulse 5-6 times just until the cilantro is mixed through and the salsa is desired consistency. Taste for seasoning and adjust to taste. Serve with your favorite chips.
