Smoking Salsa

"This salsa has a slight twist to it! Why Smoking? Besides the heat from the hot peppers you have a smokey flavor going from the chipotle peppers. Then optional for those that like it real hot use ghost chilies. This makes nice little gifts, just pack a basket with it and some chips, avocados, cheese, beer or margarita mix etc."

  1. This salsa has become my favorite!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!
     
  2. I made this salsa last fall with tomatoes and peppers from my garden and gave the jars as Christmas gives with homemade tortilla chips. Oh, the raves I received. My hair stylist still talks about it and says it was the best salsa he has ever had. Thanks for the great recipe Rita. I hope my tomatoes will produce enough for me to make it again!
     
  3. This recipe rocks for flavor and texture, extactly what I was looking for, I did add extra chipolte chilis as I love the smoky flavor. I measured right on, and came out with 8 pint jars. Of course one never made it to the pantry, the teens devoured it!
     
  4. Yummy recipe! I made mine hotter by using 4 chipoltes and adding a habenaro. I also subbed lemon juice for the vinegar. I only had a 6oz can of tomato paste, so I added a little tomatoe sauce. It turned out nice and thick. My son tasted it and loves it! This beats the salsa I made last year by far! Thanks Rita!!
     
  5. Absolutely fantastic!Used canned diced tomatoes,yellow,red and orange peppers,and every thing else exactly the same as the recipe. Took it to work and everyone RAVED!!!! Thank you SOOOOO much!
