I was very pleasantly surprised by this salsa. It was flavorful and very fresh tasting. My husband and I both scarfed this down and he can't stand green peppers. The only change I made was a little dried tarragon because I didn't have any fresh. Next time I may use a little more adobo sauce to spice it up a little more. Read More

The tarragon in this salsa makes it taste weird and not in a good way. Read More

Adobo Herb Salsa Haiku: "Increased cilantro. And I dropped the tarragon. Nice adobo kick!" I love the smoky bite and spicy aftertaste that the adobo sauce gave this salsa; I didn't deviate from the recipe except to scale it to half so that I only had to use a 14.5 oz. can of diced tomatoes. The longer it sits in the fridge the tastier it gets so aim for more than the recommended 30 min. Simply scooped up onto tortilla chips this is a tasty and easy alternative to store-bought salsa. (Oh and as a random side note once you open the can of chipotles to measure out the adobo sauce the perfect sized container for what's remaining in the can is a leftover Spice World 8 oz. jar of minced garlic.)

Excellent! I love the adobo addition! Adds such a great flavor. I didn't have fresh tarragon and so I used dried instead. I would definitely recommend this! Read More
