This recipe makes a large batch of chipotle salsa, but you can easily cut this recipe in half.  We also like our salsa pretty thin, like restaurant salsa, but you can keep this chunkier if you like by just blending it for a shorter amount of time.

A great restaurant style salsa with that great warm, chipotle heat.

  • Chop your tomatoes into chunks and place in a food processor with the lime juice.

  • Add cilantro, garlic, salt, cumin and chipotle with sauce in the food processor.
