Serves Tool

Serves To:USMetric
1 Pound(lb)  cherry or grape tomatoes
1   green bell pepper, seeded and quartered
1/2   large lemon
1   large red onion, cut into 8 chunks
4 Clove(clv)  garlic, peeled and left whole
2 Tablespoon(T)  extra virgin olive oil
1 Teaspoon(t)  coarse sea salt
12 Ounce(oz)  soy chorizo, casings removed, crumbled
1/3 Cup(c)  fresh cilantro
6   burrito style flour tortillas


Preheat the oven to 400° F.  Have ready a large rimmed baking sheet.  Combine the tomatoes, bell pepper, lemon, onion and garlic on the baking sheet.  Drizzle the oil and sprinkle salt on top.  Mix it all in with your hands, making sure every inch of the veggies gets coated.  Place the lemon cut side down on the sheet.  Bake for 20 minutes, or until the tomatoes look deflated.  Check once while the veggies are baking, to make sure nothing burns.  In the meantime, place the soy chorizo in a skillet, and brown it over medium heat, about 8 minutes.  Set aside.  Crush the roasted garlic with the flat of a knife.  Add to a food processor along with three fourths of the tomatoes, the onion and the cilantro, and squeeze the lemon over all.  Pulse several times, leaving the salsa somewhat chunky.  Cut the bell pepper into large chunks.  Place some on a fresh, warm tortilla.  Top with a few remaining whole tomatoes, the salsa and some chorizo.  Repeat with the remaining 5 tortillas.
