    I don't get salsa enough to consider making it all the time at home to save money but I thought it's worth a shot to see how it turns out. Pretty simple, only thing I'd change is to use less veggies so there's more space between them on the pan so that they can roast properly (I use less actual tomatoes but add in a bit of strained tomatoes or diced tomatoes when blending), and adding a bit of cumin to it before blending as well as sprinkling with chilli powder before roasting.

    The ultimate cheat salsa:

    1 can (or however many) of diced tomatoes WITH cilantro and chilies (see Mexican food aisle)

    1/4 of a chopped onion

    Add your favorite hot sauce to taste, if you like it hotter...

    And, done...

    This will cost about 1/3 of what they usually charge for all of these things being in the same jar together.

    Usually, cumin is not added to salsa, but you can add anything you want. Around here those cans are about 50 cents, and you can have more salsa than you can eat for about two-three bucks.

    The canned queso is also half the price of nacho cheese dips in the chip aisle, so again, you can save money. :D

    I add it to give it some spiciness along with cayenne powder. I like your cheat salsa as someone who prefers short-cuts with cooking but I wanted to give roasting the veggies a try as that adds some taste.

    I'm never going near Habenero peppers though. I've had my hands burn for hours multiple times after cutting scotch bonnet peppers from the carribean or Mexican grocery store peppers and it took forever to get it out.

    Capsicum is an irritant, not really a flavoring agent. I prefer to go easy on the really hot peppers.

    I want to make fermented salsa for taco salads. Good source of probiotics.

    My wife is from Italy, and she makes some of our pasta dishes using the roasting of veggies and then adding them to hot pasta with some olive oil, garlic, fresh basil, and grated cheese on top. She'll use different veggies depending on what we're in the mood for plus what we got in the fridge.
