Smoked Tomato Cocktail Sauce

Ingredients:
4 smoked tomatoes, skinned and diced
1 smoked jalapeno, skinned and diced
1/2 red onion, small diced
2 oz red wine vinegar
1 Tbs roasted garlic puree
1/4 bunch cilantro
Juice of 1 lime
1 cup ketchup
2 Tbs horseradish
zest of 1/2 lemon
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
Smoke the tomatoes and jalapenos. Dice the red onion and cover with the red wine vinegar.  Let sit for 10 minutes. Combine all ingredients and puree using a hand blender.  You want the sauce to be chunky-not pureed smooth-so don’t over work the sauce. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt, pepper and your desired amount of horseradish flavor
