Cravin me some SALSA!!

Ok....anyone that knows me or knows my family knows that a bag of chips, a fresh batch of salsa and a ice cold coke is by far our favorite thing to eat!!  Growing up,  you could not be a guest at our house without being offered this SPECTACULAR combo!   To this day it is still my favorite food so I am always trying to improve the salsa recipe over and over.  The other day I came up with what I call "Pure Salsa Satisfaction"!  Mmmmmmmmmmmm is all I can say because there is a chip in my mouth as we speak! haha.  So I thought I would be kind to all you readers and salsa lovers and give you this little golden nugget to put in your recipe box!  ENJOY!!

Melissa's Salsa:

3 fresh roma tomatoes

1 fresh pablano pepper (seeded and roasted in a oven on broil untill the skin starts to turn almost black)

cilantro (As much as you wish for your taste.  I just rip off a chunk!)

1/2 yellow onion

2 large chipotle peppers in adobo sauce

 (A must!) Make sure you cut them in half and scrape all the seeds out first or you will have some dang HOT salsa on your hands.  Wear plastic gloves or the oils from the peppers will soak in your skin.  Just a tip! :)

1 can western family tomatoes with cilantro and lime with juice (picture below)

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp salt (I do it to taste cuz I'm a salt freak!)

1 tsp chili powder

I have listed the pictures of the ingredients because the brand is very important.  Right down to the kind of chips!  Now don't CHEAT or it wont be the same experience!  I feel very strong about this now!!

Chipotle peppers


Pablano or also called Pasilla

The best chips I've found without making your own!

And walla!!!!  You have some amazing tasting salsa!  This salsa is more mild but still has a little kick!
