If you didn’t know by now, I love all kinds of salsa! It’s the perfect time to get those plump red juicy home grown tomatoes that you just can’t get any other time of year. If you can’t grow your own, farmers market tomatoes are the next best thing. I found some big meaty tomatoes at the farmers market, and they made the best salsa! I would have roasted everything outdoors but on this day it was rainy and dreary so I had to make due and roast on top of the gas stove. It worked out just fine, the house was filled with the aroma of roasting chiles, onions, garlic and tomatoes. The salsa was terrific on the zucchini fritters and I took care of the rest with a bag of tortilla chips!

August means it’s “Hatch” season. The first green chile have arrived but I haven’t found any roasters set up yet so I just picked up a few to get started. The first thing I wanted to make was some salsa so I went to the farmer’s market to pick up fresh tomatoes. But as usual I get caught up in all the fruits and veggies and picked up some zucchini and corn too. I had recently been drooling over a post from Kevin at “Closet Cooking” for Jalapeno Popper Corn Fritters which gave me the idea to make fritters with the Hatch green chile. I tweaked the recipe a bit and made a zucchini version too. I topped them with some Fire Roasted Salsa and Flamethrower Sauce. They were quite filling and really tasty, enough to make a whole meal out of them.
