  2. Place tomatoes (whole) on baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil
  3. Broil tomatoes until charred. Remove and set aside to cool.
  4. Chop green onion (end result should be 1-2 tablespoons worth), garlic, and jalapeno
  5. Remove the core of the tomatoes, and combine in food processor with green onion, garlic, jalapeno, red pepper flakes, and a pinch of salt and pepper. (NOTE: I do not have a food processor and therefore used my nutribullet.. if you do this be very careful not to over blend, I did this the first time I made it. The tomatoes are very juicy!)
