Terrific Salsa. A little hot, but great smoky flavor. I find it great without any added sugar or salt. I spray the pan with olive oil spray to reduce the oil. All my friends who've tried it, love it. Easy to make, too.
I made this for a party, and it was delicious! The leftovers I used to top snacks, and it tastes great blended with sour cream. It's very much like expensive the Frontera Grill brand of chipotle salsa.
Served this with corn chips and guacamole at an appetizer at a bbq last night. It got RAVE reviews from my guests (they said I should bottle it!). A few notes: I used one tin of chopped tomatillos and one tin of whole peeled plum tomatoes (it's what I had on hand). I roasted these for about 45 minutes with the garlic and a bit of olive oil and it worked just fine. I then added 3 chipotle chiles and it was waaaay too hot. Had to add an extra fresh chopped tomato and a bit of lime juice to tame it down (this actually worked out well - the chopped tomato gave it some texture and freshenss). My advice: start with one chipotle chile then add more to your taste.
Great! Next time I will probably just saute the onions and garlic or leave them raw per personal preference, but a very good salsa. Thanks Sue L!
love it. the only change from the recipe that i made was added a little lime juice. i didn't realize the chiles were as hot as they are but the lime juice offset some of that heat.
LOVED this salsa!! I could not get fresh tomatillos today, so I had to use canned. I did not roast them in the oven...I thought they'd pop and juice would be everywhere. So, next time I'll try to find them again...I'm sure it'll be even better with fresh ones! I love the spicy, smoky flavor of chipotle peppers so this was way up my alley. I added a little more than a tsp of sugar and just did the salt to taste. Since the skin was coming off of the tomatoes when they were done broiling I just removed it, I'm not a fan of those little skin pieces anyway. Thanks so much will definately be making again!!
Excellent salsa. Has a nice smoky flavor that makes it different from most other ones. Plus it's a great way to use up chipotles that I otherwise don't need. Labor day BBQ loved it. Thanks!
