Chipotle Salsa

Ingredients:

1 teaspoon olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
3 medium plum (Roma) tomatoes, chopped (1 cup)
1 can (14.5 oz) Muir Glen™ organic fire roasted tomatoes, undrained
1 tablespoon chopped chipotle chiles in adobo sauce (from 7-oz can)
1 cup loosely packed fresh cilantro leaves
Tortilla chips

Directions:

In large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Cook onion and garlic in oil, stirring frequently, until onion is very soft. Add plum tomatoes; cook 4 to 5 minutes or until tomatoes start to break down.

Stir in fire roasted tomatoes and chipotle chiles. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thickened. Remove from heat; cool slightly.

In food processor or blender, place salsa and cilantro. Cover; process with on-and-off pulses until cilantro is finely chopped. Transfer to serving bowl.

Serve salsa with tortilla chips.

    I love salsa! I have never been brave enough to make my own though. This one doesn’t look to hard. I might have to give it a try.

    My favorite salsa, I never eat Tortillas without it. Thanks for teaching me how to do it at home, I tried it once but it wasn’t that tasty, with your recipe it’s much better.
