I have a slight obsession forming.

I’ve put chipotle chiles in tomato soup, I’ve made sweet potato fries with chipotle seasoning, and now I’ve added it to salsa.  I love the smokiness the pepper gives off and plus a can of chipotles in adobo sauce can last through many meals.

I’ve made salsa with tomatillos before but I was looking for something a little quicker and this was it.  The salsa worked perfectly as a dip for the taquitos I made and for a salsa on top of my eggs.

If you find yourself with a lot of left over chipotles, place in a plastic bag and freeze for later use.

Chipotle Tomatillo Salsa
Prep time
Total time
Recipe type: Appetizers
Serves: 1 cup
  • 1½ pound tomatillos
  • ½ small onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 tablespoon lime juice
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ none Chipotle pepper
  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add in tomatillos and let sit for 2-3 minutes. Remove tomatillos from water and peel off the husk (the boiling water should help this.)
  2. In a food processor combine all the ingredients. (if you want a spicier salsa, consider adding a little extra chipotle into the mix.) Turn on food processor and run until salsa comes together.
