Chipotle Salsa Recipe

I’m a salsa snob. It’s hard to admit it, but it’s true. Living in New England after California is hard on the salsa front. I prefer to make it at home. It’s fairly easy to throw together a few ingredients and you can be inspired by what is in your cabinet. A month ago, I picked up some chipotle peppers with big dreams and few plans. I found them as we were whipping up an early dinner the other night and decided to use them as a simple twist on our regular salsa recipe.

If you are anything like me, then salsa matters. I love a smoky flavor to pair with my quesadillas or nachos. It makes any meal for a little bit more woodsy, and this salsa is no exception. As the Spice Girls would say,

When your feelin’,
Sad and lone
We will take you,
Where you gotta go
Smilin’ and dancin’,
Everything is free
All you need is
Colours of the world
Spice up your life
Every boy and girl
Spice up your life
People of the world
Spice up your life
