Bring on the Smoke n' Spice with Chipotle Salsa
In honor of a belated Cinco de Mayo party with my new co-workers, I decided to craft up a homemade chipotle salsa. The only salsa I've ever made at home is a simple pico de gallo, so I was slightly unsure about the experience but didn't think it'd be too difficult.
Finding some simple recipes on Buzzfeed's 21 Incredibly Easy Salsa Recipes You Need to Try, this first one for Homemade Chipotle Salsa caught my eye. The fact that it didn't consist of any funky or hard to find ingredients was a plus for me, and the smoky element from the chipotle is always welcome. I love me some adobo sauce, so any excuse to use it was a plus in my book.
It created the above pictured chunky concoction, and I have to say it was mighty delicious. Bringing it in for our partay, I got some nice compliments and luckily because I went easy on the jalapenos, it wasn't overly spicy. Note - I used just half of the portion they recommend in the recipe and it was plenty. However, those of you who have a more adventurous palate, by all means try some more.
