Spicy chipotle peppers, one of my favorite chiles, balances with tart tomatillos for a restaurant worthy salsa! Adapted from Cooking With Too Hot Tamales cookbook.

I thought it was great to put the two together! I usually make tomatillos with jalapenos or Chipotle with red tomatoes. So this was a twist and it was great. I left out the sugar and only placed a few pieces of onion-came out great for a side salsa for our mexican tacos. Thanks again for another great recipe.
