HOMEMADE CHIPOTLE SALSA & the winner!

Homemade Chipotle Salsa

One of the best things I like to dip my chip into is Salsa. I must admit that I never liked it while I was in India but moving to US and trying it here made me a Salsa lover. I usually buy salsa and I have tried various flavours including smoked Chipotle Salsa from Trader Joes. They taste so good that I can just use a big straw and sip it while I watch a movie!

Last month I joined a club, a secret recipe club. Amanda being the wonderful host she is assigned me to another blog where I chose a recipe from without that blogger knowing and blog about it on the reveal date. Confused? Go over to Amanda's blog and read about it there.
Singing with Birds was the blog that was assigned to me.She had so many recipes that I had a hard time choosing what I wanted until I saw her recipe for Salsa. There was no looking back then! So here's the modified recipe with the things I had in my pantry.

This is probably one of my shortest posts ever. I have no time today to sit and type even though I'd love to...got lots of cleaning up to do after a fun weekend! We ate so much the last 3 days that I can go into a hibernation for a week ;-) We started the weekend grilling some yummy juicy patties that I made topped with some cheese and sandwiched between buns.Later we had some Juicy Honey Wings...that was just the start ;-) Oh yes, there was Jobin's Tiramisu involved. A new full batch!
