Okay so I am beyond excited to share this recipe with you. It was a surprise supreme thing taste-wise when completed (in less than 5 minutes I might add) as I was faced with the fact that I was missing tomato sauce, did not want to use fresh tomatoes and really wanted/needed a homemade quick-like salsa asap! I discover tomato paste as a new (to me) key ingredient in salsa making.
I give you my Salsa Supreme… 🙂
- 1 Tblsp good quality tomato paste
- 1 cup water
- 1 Tblsp chopped onion
- 1 Tblsp chopped cilantro
- 2 whole chipotle chiles
Here’s the type of chipotle chiles I use
- 1 small garlic clove
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 quick squeeze of lime
- Blend all ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth
- That’s it, it’s ready!
- Refrigerate any unused portion for later enjoyment
* the salsa may seem a bit thin to you, I was ok with the consistency. Next day it certainly does thicken up a bit.
