This roasted tomato sauce is amazing served up with all kind of Mexican food, like enchiladas, tacos, and these fajitas. It would also be nice with some plain or Mexican grilled steak or chicken or fish.  It will keep for about 5 days in the fridge, and I see nothing wrong with menu planning around it for an entire week.

If you want you could skip the cilantro – some people just don’t like it.  You could sub in parsley for a bit of green freshness, or you could add 1/2 teaspoon of ground cumin if you want an earthier, smokier flavor.
