Chipotle Salsa

Pin It
This is the salsa that I made up about a year or so ago. Ben says it's so good he could drink it straight! You can adjust the spiciness by adding or taking away from the chipotle peppers. You can also split the peppers and scrape out the seeds to take some of the heat away which is what I do.


2 cans plain diced tomatoes, undrained (with or without salt)
1 whole bunch cilantro, stems removed
3 cloves garlic
2 stalks green onions/scallions, trimmed
2 whole chipotle pepers in adobo sauce, seeded
1/2 tsp kosher salt, or to taste

Put all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. That's it!


  1. What are chipotle peppers in adobe sauce and where can I find them?


  2. Hi! They are basically smoked jalapenos. Look in the Mexican food section of your grocery store near the enchilada sauces. They are in a small can, probably only 5-6 oz. There will be lots in that small can too so I always just put the extras in the freezer. Let me know how it turns out!
