The Salsa That Reigns Supreme

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  Process  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.
