Recipe by The Rock & Roll BBQ Chef
This is a zesty and spicy recipe. Adjust chipotle to modify heat. It will have a creamy texture. Great on eggs, chicken, and seafood

Rock & Roll BBQ Chef you've done it again! Another A++++++ recipe! My DH requested I make a tomatillo salsa and when I saw you had one I just knew it would be terrific. So easy to make with such incredible results. I halved the amount of chile's (I'm a heat wuss..lol) and doubled the lime juice. We ate this strait out of the bowl with tortilla chips..yummo!!!! Thanks again R&R BBQ Chef!
