Chipotle Red Salsa Recipe – Easy!

Chipotle Red Salsa Recipe - Easy! - No Cook - Quick 5 Minute Salsa - Restaurant - Rich Bitch Cooking

I saw this recipe on pinterest the other day and could not stop get this off my mind. Before bed I was straight up thinking about this. I’ve seen Chipotle restaurant’s red salsa recipes on different websites before but it’s always out of my realm of simplicity. Here I don’t cook or chop fresh tomatoes or soak dried leathery peppers. I open a few cans, chop a couple ingredients and I’m 99% done. Dude, SO FREAKING EASY. So smokey and delicious.

Now I’m not sure to what degree you would say this tastes like the restaurants version. Definitely let me know if you think this is spot on, close or way off base. I love this recipe and would make salsa from scratch every time if I followed this recipe alone. Outside of that I’ll buy a jar of salsa at aldi for $1.50.

We ate half the batch with a bag of ghost pepper tortilla chips. So tomorrow I’ll find out how the salsa tastes after sitting overnight and not eating it with spicy chips. My guess is it will taste ever better tomorrow. I’m curious how spicy the salsa is on it’s own. I know the chipotle peppers have heat but dipping with ghost pepper chips had my mouth on fire. Tomorrow we’ll see how spicy the salsa itself is.

*this can be made with less chipotle peppers, jalapenos instead of chipotle peppers or no peppers at all

The original recipe (linked below) has the measurements I’ll be referencing but if you watch the video I did not measure the cilantro or lime juice. I really didn’t want wash any extra items.
