I really like the smoky flavor that the chipotle peppers add, but beware, they also add heat! I did not use the whole can, and I'm glad about that. Using fresh tomatoes really gives a flavor boost, but I suggest chopping them and letting them drain, while the other ingredients are being prepared. I added all ingredients EXCEPT tomatoes to the food processor and placed those in a serving bowl. I processed the drained tomatoes separately, then stirred all the ingredients, together. This also gave a chunky salsa, which we prefer. Thanks for the idea! Read More

This is a very flavorful salsa and so different than my usual recipe I make. The flavors are very bold! My jalapeños were on the hot side so it was pretty spicy but still the other flavors held up. Read More

This is a delicious salsa! I think next time I will chop the tomatoes and onions a little finer, but otherwise I will leave well enough alone! Thanks, Mike! Read More

Quick and easy homemade salsa recipe full of flavor and heat. The chipotle in adobo sauce gives it a nice smokey edge and a deep, dark color. I used a food processor instead of a blender. Love that you can chop this up as chunky or fine as you like. This one is a winner! Read More

Fabulous Recipe! Surprisingly bold and tasty, plenty spicy but not overly so, this salsa was - in my husband’s words - “probably the best ever!” Changes I made were: *remove the pulp/seeds from half the tomatoes *used the food processor vs blender *diced and saved a little of the cilantro, onion and tomato for crunch and garnish on top Read More

It’s a good salsa with a bit of heat. I reduced to half the chipotle and pepper. Read More

I LOVED this salsa! I have never made salsa with chipotle peppers and I really loved the smoky flavor. This was also super easy to make in a blender. I'll definitely be making this again! Next time I will use less onion as I'm sensitive to it, so although it was delicious, the onion flavor lingered with me for days! The jalapenos also gave it just the right amount of heat. Read More
