Fiery Chipotle Salsa

Chipotle salsa.🌶🍅🍈 This is a quick and simple salsa recipe, using hot and smoky chipotles. I often make a fire roasted salsa, which involves charring tomatoes and fresh chillies first before blending, but by using Chipotle chillies the process is a little easier. Roughly chop 4 tomatoes. Cut the stalks off 2 chipotle chillies and then snip the chillies into little pieces. But both in a saucepan with half a cup of water. Simmer for 10 - 15 minutes until the dried chillies have softened and the tomatoes broken down. In a pestle and mortar grind 2 garlic cloves with a pinch of salt. Add half a diced onion and grind some more. Next drain the tomatoes (keep the liquid for something else - I chucked it into a beef barbacoa I was making) Add the tomatoes and chipotles to the pestle and mortar, pound together then add the juice of half a lime and a little more salt if needed. Of course if you are feeling weak you can use a food processor 😉

Store the salsa in the fridge and spoon it over tacos, dip your tortilla crisps in it, or lash it on your eggs in the morning
