Posts Tagged ‘chipotle’

Inspired by a salsa I had recently I decided to make my own.  Ingredients:

6 decently sized tomatoes

2 fresh jalapeno peppers

1 dried chipotle  pepper

3 cloves of unpeeled garlic

Roast the tomatoes in an oven set to broil on a high heat until the skin gets blackened and starts falling off.  Meanwhile roast the jalapenos and garlic in a frying pan on the stove top until soft.  Remove the stem and end bit of the chipotle and break it down.  I used a mortar and pestle but there are a bunch of ways to do it.  Remove the stems from the jalapenos and throw them, the softened, peeled garlic and the chipotle, seeds and all into a blender or food processor.  Break that down as much as possible and throw in the peeled tomatoes.  Blend/process to desired consistency.  Add salt to taste.  Cool and serve.  Adding sour cream helps to temper the heat.

We ate a ton of this stuff last night but so far it hasn’t lived up to it’s name.  Fingers crossed!
