Simple Chipotle Salsa

This is a simple smokey zippy chipotle salsa that you can use for chips or slather over a slow roasted pork shoulder & wrap in a warm corn tortilla with avocado slices.¬† I can’t bring myself to buy gourmet salsa for $3.00-$6.00 a jar when you can pick up jars of marinara sauce two for one every other week at the local grocery or just $1.00 at Target everyday!

I have slow roasted roma tomato’s in the oven with salt, pepper & olive oil, peeled them & chopped to make a wonderful salsa, it’s not tomato season in the deep south so I’m all about jars of cheating sauce. (Oh there’s the Sandra Lee in me,,,*hic*) ūüėČ

These are the ingredients for the chipotle salsa, you can add fresh cilantro to your liking, even peaches or pineapple for a fruit salsa, that always complements the pork or a chicken quesadilla.¬† Other ingredients I’ve used were black beans & corn over rice.¬† Use you imagination & go crazy!


  • 3/4 Jar Marinara
  • 1 Can Chopped Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce
  • 2 Tbs. Amber Agave Nectar (can use sugar or honey)
  • 1 tsp. Ground Cumin
  • 1 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. Ground Thyme
  • 1 Tbs. Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 4 Tbs. Chopped Cilantro

Method To The Madness:

Mix all ingredients together in a medium size glass bowl with a wooden spoon & serve.¬† Wow that was easy!¬† I would only keep in a air tight container for a week, I’m sure you can freeze it in freezer bags as well.

Bon Appetit!
