We are making Pico de Gallo and a chipotle salsa today. Pico de Gallo is an all purpose salsa. It just makes everything taste better. My favorite, is to make a cheese quesadilla and plop a dollop of pico de gallo on top. Simple and delicious! I will refer you to a past post for a recipe.
Chipotle Salsa is a smoky, hot, sweet and ketchup like type of salsa. The chipotle pepper has so many flavor nuances. I am using home smoked chipotle, but canned chipotle in adobo is readily found at your local store. This sauce is simmered for a while and then pureed in a blender.
- 7 tomatoes roughly chopped
- 4 chipotles peppers
- salt to taste
- 1 tablespoon sugar or honey
- 2 tablespoons vinegar
- 1/2 cup of water
Place all ingredients in a saute pan. Bring to a simmer. Simmer for 20 minutes. Let cool and place into a blender. Puree all ingredients. Add a little water if mixture is to thick.
That's all she wrote. Another simple but very satisfying salsa. Take some tortilla chips and enjoy the summer bounty!!!!!!!
