    Slice the top off of the head of garlic and wrap it in aluminum foil. Place the wrapped garlic, tomatoes on the vine and onion halves directly on the grill grate. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the tomato skins have split, and the onion and garlic have started to soften.

    • 1 Head garlic

    • 1 1/2 Pound tomatoes on the vine

    • 1 Large white onion, halved

    Remove the tomatoes from the vine and take the foil off of the garlic. Transfer the tomatoes and onions to the blender, then squeeze the softened garlic out of its skin into the blender. Add the chile powder, cumin, salt and hot sauce to the blender. Hold the lid on at an angle to allow steam to escape. Blend until the sauce is smooth. If the sauce seems too thick, add a tablespoon of water at a time until desired consistency is reached.
