This is such a great recipe! I was looking for a salsa recipe to make for the Super Bowl and stumbled on this one. It's super easy and quick. I doubled the recipe with the intentions of taking it all to the party, but ended up storing half to keep at my house! You have to try this!!!

This is really good and very easy to make. Also, it's easy to modify it to your taste and preferred level of heat

I am a fan of chipotle from way back and this is a beautiful and easy salsa - I used jarred crushed garlic which cuts down on the prep time. Thank you! This may be a little spicey if you are looking for a "mild' salsa though. I would rate this a "medium" on the fire scale for most people and "mild" for those of us used to spice.
