This chipotle salsa has a perfect blend of smoky flavor and spice. You can tone down the spice by reducing the amount of peppers and/or by adding sour cream to make a salsa cream dip.
  • 2-3 Tbsp oil
  • 4 tomatillos
  • 2 Roma tomatoes, cut in half
  • ½ white onion, cut in large chunks
  • 6-8 cloves of garlic
  • 2-4 jalapeno or serrano peppers
  • 1 7-ounce can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 1 bunch of cilantro leaves
  • 1-2 tsp salt, to taste
  1. Heat the oil in a pan over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the whole tomatillos, whole jalapenos, onion chunks, tomato halves and whole garlic cloves.
  3. Roast them until golden on all sides, flipping them occasionally so that all sides cook.
  4. If they begin to stick to the pan, add a splash of water to the pan, reduce the heat and cover the pan to allow them to simmer and cook.
  5. Add the roasted vegetables to the blender with the chipotle peppers and the cilantro.
  6. Blend until a smooth salsa forms, adding salt to taste.
