"Garden tomatoes are in abundance so I make salsa with ingredients I had on hand and this is what I came up with. Do adjust the heat to your taste."

  1. This salsa is AMAZING....... It's not really spicy so if you want a spicy salsa, I suggest adding extra jalapeno peppers and chipotle peppers (then again my tolerance for spicy food is higher than average) Needless to say, this is the best salsa recipe that I've found. It taste really fresh and it goes great on everything. If you're hesitating on this recipe.. DON'T... just make it :).
  2. I have yet to try a recipe with chipotle chilies in adobo that I don't like, so I was excited to try this, but while it was simmering I wasn't sure I was going to like it. After it had chilled, I took one bite and thought, "Oh, I guess it's okay." Then I took another bite and I thought, "You know, this is kind of good." And from then on I couldn't stop eating it! My husband felt the same way. I had halved the recipe, and no kidding, we ate the entire bowl right then and there. As soon as my tomatoes ripen, I'm going to make some more! Thank you, Rita.
  3. I was another lucky lady who received a jar direct from the chef! The heat was perfect for my hubby and I loved the cilantro flavour. Thanx Rita!
  4. What a terrific salsa! I was lucky enough to receive a jar of this salsa from the Chef herself! The chipotle's add a terrific flavour. We enjoyed this with tortilla chips, but saved some for another time too. Can't wait to make some of my own! Thanks Rita!!
