I checked out the Pioneer Woman's new book at the library last week. It's such a pretty book - pretty colors, cute kids and dogs and gorgeous horses...oh, yeah, the food ain't too shabby either.
I'm going off of memory here on this recipe since I've already returned the book and ding dong me took a picture of the recipe on my phone and then deleted it after I made the salsa thinking I could easily find the recipe online somewhere - not so easy!
You're going to want to try this salsa. I thought it was delicious. It's a little on the hot side even though we only used one chipotle. I'm a wimp when it comes to hot stuff though.
Pioneer Woman's Chipotle Salsa (from my memory)
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 can Rotel
1 onion diced
1 garlic clove minced (or a teaspoon of jarred garlic)
1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce (you know, the canned stuff)
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
bunch of cilantro with stems whacked off
1/4 cup lime juice
Dump everything into the blender and give it a whirl. I stored mine in mason jars in the fridge.
|Don't be hatin' on my paper plate now, y'all!|
