This is delicious! My DH and I love all things chipotle and this is a wonderful sauce. I made it last night to eat with chips and it was good, but I prefer a chunkier, raw salsa for dipping. The flavor is so good however, that I am going to serve it warm today with shredded beef burritos. I may also try it with empanadas. I would definitely use this as a sauce for anything Mexican or Tex Mex. Don't skip the cilantro--it really balances with the spiciness of the chipotle. My DH and I usually cut way back on cilantro and/or mix it with parsley, but I added the full amount with this recipe. If you're looking for a traditional "salsa" for chips, this may not be it. If you're looking for a wonderful sauce to enhance burritos (beef, pork or chicken), I would recommend this. Thanks for posting cookiedog!
